Thanks for visiting my Web page! My name is Paul F. Roberts and I’m the founder and Editor in Chief of The Security Ledger, an news and analysis web site that focuses on security and the Internet of Things.
The elevator pitch for me is that I’m an experienced writer with a decade of experience reporting on information (aka “cyber”) security and a broad range of other technology issues. In addition to my writing for Security Ledger, I am a contributing writer to The Christian Science Monitor’s Passcode a “modern field guide to security and privacy.” I also regularly contribute articles and opinion to tech-focused web sites like ITWorld.com and Infoworld.com.
Prior to launching Security Ledger, I worked as a Senior Analyst in The 451 Group’s Enterprise Security Practice. I have held positions as a senior writer and editor at noted industry publications including Threatpost.com, Infoworld.com and Ziff Davis’s eWeek.com and The IDG News Service. My work has appeared in leading print and online publications including The Economist Intelligence Unit, MIT Technology Review, The Boston Globe, Salon.com, Fortune Small Business, as well as ZDNet, Computerworld, CIO and CSO. I have appeared as an expert guest speaking about cyber security issues on NPR’s Marketplace Tech Report and The Oprah Show.
Prior to donning the reporter’s cap, I spent close to a decade in the technology field, providing technical communications, product training and marketing and communications services to firms including Cisco Systems, Logica and SteelPoint Technologies (now part of HP).
