Tech Solvency / Royce Williams



I'm Royce Williams. I work in information security. Tech Solvency is where I conduct independent research. I live in Anchorage, Alaska with my family.

I am a public-interest technologist at heart. I believe that the keepers of technology should first do no harm (though second-order effects mean trade-offs - for example, a surgeon does some "harm" cutting into a patient, for the patient's own good). Shostack's concept of cyber public health aligns with my feelings here.

"Just doing my undue diligence." (In the ha ha only serious tradition.)

I have been online since I was 17, so judge accordingly.


Undue diligence that I'm proud of: professional ...

... and personal


My undertaking is not difficult, essentially ... I should only have to be immortal to carry it out. - Jorge Luis Borges
