Brian Krebs wins the Mary Litynski award
A little late, but I’ve been in sessions most of today. M3AAWG announced this morning that Brian Krebs won the 2014 Mary Litynski award. This award is given to people who work tirelessly to make the internet a better place.
I first had the pleasure of listening to Brian give the keynote address at a MAAWG conference many years ago. His ability to infiltrate some major spam operations and online forums for criminals is amazing. He’s also had retaliation attempts, including being SWATed and having heroin delivered to his house.
If you get a chance to hear Brian speak, I strongly encourage you to do so. His knowledge is outstanding and his speaking style is entertaining. I’ve learned a lot from Brian over the years and I’m pleased he won this award and that M3AAWG recognized his contribution to stopping abuse online.
