Robert’s interest in database security has roots in his reading about data leaks through which consumers risked identity theft and companies risked their reputations and very existence. Robert enjoys flying vintage aircraft, racing sailboats, photography, and technical diving. Robert owns and flies the Spirit of Baltimore Hon, a restored 1948 Ryan Navion.
