Alex Hernandez brings more than 20 years of experience in providing security solutions to some of the largest companies in the world. Hernandez is a recognized authority on Internet security, having worked with numerous Fortune 500 companies to design and implement security solutions across email, Web, application and network infrastructures. At DefenseStorm he helps to design and implement solutions that allow financial institutions to unify detection, investigation, reporting, and compliance into a single place to manage cybersecurity data – while also making the daily work of cybersecurity professionals easier, so they can focus on stopping cyber-criminals instead of busy work.

Hernandez is regularly sought after by banking associations and state banking schools across the country to discuss cybersecurity and the evolving threat landscape as it relates to financial institutions; because while banks have similar needs to other corporations, they have unique security needs that present a compelling requisite for a solution that keeps our country’s most sensitive financial data secure from foreign attackers and organized criminals. As an expert in the field of IT and security, he too has spoken at regional and national IT/security conferences; including Interop, RSA and ISSA.

Prior to DefenseStorm, Hernandez worked with several leading security solutions providers, including Barracuda Networks, Purewire, Secure Computing, CipherTrust, S1 and SecureWare.
