Meet the DEV/CON Team and Our Trusted Board of Industry Advisors
After spending more than a decade as a digital leader in the publishing industry, including E.W. Scripps, Los Angeles Times and Morris Communications, I founded DEV/CON to address the growing need for ad tech security and revenue protection.
I became passionate about this unexplored area of business after discovering methods by which a developer was able to exploit a publisher platform, extorting nearly $1 million dollars.Maggie Louie
