Rachelle Saunders

Helical Levity/SANS

Rachelle Saunders has a multidisciplinary background in web development, business analysis, QA, and project management spanning over 10 years and a wide variety of web application projects large and small. Her roles and experience have led her to focus at points of intersection and overlap between processes and organizational groups, in particular across groups with differing technical backgrounds and types of expertise. For the last 2 years she's been deep-diving into AppSec, information security and privacy, learning how to hack and build better, more resilient apps. She currently works in R&D alongside a clever bunch of developers, designers and security researchers at Helical Levity, and has been heavily involved in the creation of the CyberStart application toolset, as well as the UK Cyber Discovery School program, both of which are focused on training a new generation of technically skilled cyber security professionals.
