Joel Wallenstrom is the CEO & President of Wickr and a world renowned information security expert. Joel has led top white hat hacker teams responding to some of the most high profile incidents in the past 20 years. Under his executive guidance Wickr has since pivoted the company from solely offering a free consumer product to a robust enterprise compliance ready, secure collaboration platform used by the Fortune 500 and top federal organizations. Prior to joining Wickr, Joel co-founded iSEC Partners, one of the world’s leading information security research teams, later acquired by the NCC Group. Joel also served as the Director for Strategic Alliances @stake, one of the very first computer security companies, which was acquired by L0pht Heavy Industries and was itself later purchased by Symantec.
