About Rodney Joffe

Previously a cybersecurity adviser to the White House – and with connections to the Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) – Rodney Joffe has devoted more than 20 years to investigating and preventing cyberattacks and malicious web activity, with eight patents to his name.

Joffe has sat on the U.S. government’s cybersecurity intelligence panel and was a leader of the Conficker Working Group. He is one of the first civilians to receive the FBI Director’s Award for outstanding cyber investigating, due in no small part to his role in uncovering and taking down the Butterfly Botnet.

His accomplishments include founding the first commercial Internet hosting company, Genuity, as well as the first outsourced and cloud-based DNS company, UltraDNS, where he invented Anycast Technology for DNS. After Neustar’s acquisition of Ultra DNS in 2006, Rodney became an executive with the company. Joffe has also been honored with the Mary Litynski Lifetime Achievement Award from M3AAWG, the global Messaging, Malware and Mobile Anti-Abuse Working Group.
