Giovanni Vigna

I am a faculty member of the Computer Science Department at the University of California in Santa Barbara.

My research focuses on malware analysis, web security, vulnerability analysis, and intrusion detection.

I am the director of the Center for CyberSecurity at UCSB.

I am co-director of the Security Lab. I am also part of the iSeclab and of the Shellphish and Epic Fail hacker groups.

I am one of the founders of Lastline, Inc., a company that develops innovative solutions to detect and mitigate advanced malware (APTs) and targeted threats.

Every year, I organize the International Capture The Flag (iCTF), the world's largest hacking competition.
