Born in Europe sometime between the invention of DARPANET and the innovation of Tim Berners-Lee, Nathan Long has walked through the valley of the shadow of the Internet for over 20 years, in an eclectic variety of roles ranging from Security Engineer to Sales Guy. In between, he administered some networks, designed a CRM, traveled as a consultant, and built a Cyber Security Integration firm, after which he sold Orthopedic implants for two years.
The husband of one and father of four, Nathan and family relocated to Idaho from Indiana in late 2015, and have been drinking deeply of Idaho’s wonders ever since. An avid reader and inveterate sushi consumer, Nathan and his wife, Elisa, love to explore new restaurants and new trailheads. If you’re so inclined, he would also delight to discuss whether William of Ockham or Bertrand Russell really came up with “Ockham’s Razor.”
Nate is an autodidact Philomath with degrees in English and Theology, who serves the St. Luke's Health System as Cyber Security Evangelist, and is the founder of CyberHedge, a cyber security startup presently in stealth mode. Nate has been delivering dynamic Cyber Security training across the US since 1999.
