David Kennedy is a cybersecurity authority whose mission is to drive the industry forward and make the world a more secure place. In addition to creating two large-scale cybersecurity firms, Kennedy has testified before Congress on issues of national security and has appeared as a subject matter expert on hundreds of national news and TV shows.
TrustedSec and Binary Defense, the two firms that Kennedy founded and continues to own, both work on a global scale to protect companies, people, and the world from malicious hackers. TrustedSec provides Information Security consulting services for organizations of all sizes, while Binary Defense is a leading Managed Security Service Provider (MSSP) that offers Managed Detection and Response (MDR).
Prior to creating TrustedSec and Binary Defense, Kennedy was a Chief Security Officer (CSO) for Diebold Incorporated, a Fortune 1000 company. As a forward thinker in the security field, Kennedy has had the privilege of speaking at some of the nation’s largest conferences, including Microsoft’s BlueHat, DEF CON, Black Hat, and DerbyCon, which he co-created in 2011 and expanded into DerbyCon Communities.

Further, his tools have been featured on a number of TV shows and movies, and he served as Technical Consultant for the critically acclaimed Mr. Robot TV show.
In an effort to advance the industry, Kennedy co-authored 'Metasploit: The Penetration Testers Guide' and co-founded the 'Penetration Testing Execution Standard' (PTES), which is the industry standard for penetration tests and has been adopted by the Payment Card Industry (PCI). Kennedy is the creator of several popular open-source tools, including 'The Social-Engineer Toolkit' (SET), PenTesters Framework (PTF), Artillery, and Fast-Track. In addition to focusing on research, Kennedy has released a number of security advisories, including zero-days.
