Ryan O’Leary is the Senior Director of the Threat Research Centre at WhiteHat Security, the web application security specialist. Ryan joined WhiteHat Security as an ethical hacker in 2007 and has since developed a breadth of experience finding and exploiting web application vulnerabilities and configuring automated tools for testing.

Reporting directly to CEO Craig Hinkley, Ryan now manages a team of over 130 security engineers, based in three locations over two continents and is responsible for overseeing the delivery of WhiteHat Sentinel, which services over 10,000 customer websites. Under Ryan’s leadership, the team has built a one-of-a-kind database that combines details of more than 26 million vulnerability patterns with proprietary algorithms to assess the threat level.
