Ted Demopoulos' first significant exposure to computers was in 1977 when he had unlimited access to his high school's PDP-11, and hacked at it incessantly. He consequently almost flunked out but learned he liked playing with computers a lot. His first entrepreneurial ventures began in college and have been continuous since.
His first professional computer work was in 1984 when he helped work his way through graduate school by programming. In 1986 Ted joined Apollo Computer where he worked with network administration, security, and user interfaces. He stayed a couple of years beyond the takeover by Hewlett-Packard, and then, in 1990, he founded Demopoulos Associates. He has been very fortunate since then to be able to work on a number of exciting projects worldwide. Along the way, Ted has also helped start a successful information security company, was the CTO at a "textbook failure" of a software startup, and has advised several other startups.
Ted is a frequent speaker at conferences, conventions, and other business events, quoted often by the press, and author of two books.
Ted conducts Leadership and Information Security Bootcamps for The SANS Institute, and is the principal of Demopoulos Associates, a consulting organization specializing in information security. Ted holds a BA from Dartmouth College and an MS from the University of New Hampshire. More information about Ted is available at www.demop.com.
