White hat security professional and entrepreneur Ivan Novikov has joined the Forbes Technology Council, an invitation-only community that serves as a platform for technology leaders to discuss and solve pressing business challenges with their peers and share their insights with readers on Forbes.com. The Forbes Technology Council includes senior executives from such companies as Salesforce, Oracle, SAP, Cisco, and many others.

Ivan is the founder of Wallarm, an AI-based security company based in Silicon Valley. Ivan is well known in the industry. He is a recipient of many bug bounty awards from such companies as Google, Facebook and Honewell. Ivan is also a frequent speaker and industry events and is known for being an inventor of memcached injection and for his work in Server Side Request Forgery (SSRF).

“I am excited to join the Forbes technical community” said Novikov, “Security issues affect lives of people across all walks of life on the daily basis. I look forward to being able to talk about security to the broader audience and in the language that can be understood by non-technical people.”

Ivan’s first article: “Why is there no silver bullet in cybersecurity?” appeared last week and is available on the Forbes website. His future articles will be published in the Security section on Forbes.com, at https://www.forbes.com/security. Congratulations to Ivan on joining the elite club of Technology leaders and visionaries!
