Effective at the May 2020 ALPS Board of Directors meeting, the Board approved the addition of Sherri Davidoff to its ranks. Sherri is the CEO of LMG Security, as well as a noted speaker, trainer, white hat hacker and author of the recently released book, “Data Breaches: Crisis and Opportunity.” As a recognized expert in cybersecurity and data breach response, Sherri has been called a “security badass” by The New York Times. She has conducted cybersecurity training for many distinguished organizations, including the Department of Defense, the American Bar Association, FFIEC/FDIC, and many more. She is a faculty member at the Pacific Coast Banking School, and an instructor for Black Hat, where she teaches her “Data Breaches” course. She is also the co-author of Network Forensics: Tracking Hackers Through Cyberspace (Prentice Hall, 2012), a noted security text in the private sector and a college textbook for many cybersecurity courses. Sherri is a GIAC-certified forensic examiner (GCFA) and penetration tester (GPEN), and holds her degree in Computer Science and Electrical Engineering from MIT. She has also been featured as the protagonist in the book, Breaking and Entering: The Extraordinary Story of a Hacker Called “Alien”.
“Sherri brings with her the caliber of experience and tech know-how from every side of the cybersecurity realm,” said ALPS President and CEO David Bell. “ALPS has been working for several years to instill cybersecurity awareness and diligence within the company as well as being on the forefront of offering a cyber liability insurance policy to our LPL policyholders. Incidentally, Sherri played an integral role in helping us craft that policy. We are fortunate to have Sherri serving on our Board.”
