Meet the CEO

Angelo, you have been HNP CEO for more than over a year now. What were your goals when you started and did you achieve them?

First of all let me confess that it seems really incredible to me that a year has already gone by. I took over the CEO position for the Honeynet Project from Christian Seifert more than a year ago and at times the role appeared quite intimidating to me. Christian and Honeynet Project founder Lance Spitzner did an awesome job of driving the organization
