Chief Scientist

Obsidian was founded by three opinionated veterans of the cybersecurity industry. Earlier in their careers, Ben and Matt worked for the NSA while Glenn was Chief Information Security Officer at Telstra. Their backgrounds in threat prevention, detection and response, as well as their experience building products and supporting customers at Carbon Black and Cylance make them the perfect team to tackle security challenges of today’s sprawling cloud environments. These former competitors created Obsidian because they saw the need for consolidated account visibility and activity monitoring and the power of analytics and ML in enabling identity-driven security.
