Has your information ever been compromised in a data breach?  There are security measures you can implement to lessen the effects.  Troy Hunt shares about the frequency and increasing size of data breaches of personal information.  Don’t miss the end where we share lots of strategies you can put in place today to better protect your information.  

Troy Hunt is an Australian Microsoft Regional Director and Microsoft Most Valuable Professional for Developer Security. He doesn’t work for Microsoft, but they're kind enough to recognize his community contributions by way of their award programs which he’s been a part of since 2011. You'll regularly find him in the press talking about security and even testifying before the US Congress on the impact of data breaches.

Troy is a Pluralsight author of many top-rating courses on web security and other technologies with more than 30 courses published to date. There's no better way to get up to speed on a topic quickly than through professional training that you can take at your own pace. As both an author and a student, Troy has nothing but positive things to say about the breadth and quality of Pluralsight courses.

One of the key projects Troy is involved in today is Have I Been Pwned (HIBP), a free service that aggregates data breaches and helps people establish if they've been impacted by malicious activity on the web. As well as being a useful service for the community, HIBP has given him an avenue to ship code that runs at scale on Microsoft's Azure cloud platform, one of the best ways we have of standing up services on the web today.

Troy regularly speaks around the world and runs developer-focused security workshops. You'll regularly find him at major technology events.
