Instructor Profile

“I enthusiastically recommend Peter as a dynamic instructor, a skilled author, and a caring mentor for me and other professionals in the field of information security.

Despite his demanding professional schedule, Peter maintains the highest standards in his teaching, writing, and all his relationships with people. As his student and a reader of his books, I am impressed with his expertise, his teaching, and the clarity of his technical writing.

We are fortunate to have such a well connected industry leader to guide the UW Information Systems Security Program. By encouraging us to attend industry events and recruiting first rate guest speakers, Peter integrates IT professionals in our program with other security professionals working throughout the region.

Peter’s integrity and commitment to his students is apparent in everything he does.”
