Mrs. Bace is currently president/CEO of Infidel, Inc., a network security consulting practice.  She is also chief strategist for the Center for Forensics, Information Technology and Security (CFITS) at the University of South Alabama.  She previously served as a senior member of the cybersecurity team at In-Q-Tel, the investment arm of the U.S. Intelligence Community, after a decade of service as a Venture Consultant for Trident Capital, where she oversaw one of the largest cybersecurity investment portfolios in Silicon Valley.


“Becky is a tremendous addition to our board of advisors,” said Anita D’Amico, Ph.D., CEO for Code Dx.  “She brings an extraordinary combination of deep technical expertise, business acumen and experience in venture funding that will prove extremely valuable to positioning Code Dx for continued growth.  It’s rare to find someone with extensive knowledge and networks in the both government and the commercial sides of information security space.  Becky joins an Advisory Board of industry experts that will help to guide us to become the top provider of software vulnerability management solutions.”


“I’ve known Anita and followed her work in cybersecurity R&D for a decade,” said Bace.  “When the opportunity arose to take on a formal advisory role to Code Dx, I was happy to do so.  Code Dx’s areas of focus, ranging from secure code development to effective cybersecurity education for expert and novice alike, represent some of the most critical challenges for the cybersecurity profession today.  The quality and rigor of Anita and her team’s work is exceptional.  I look forward to being a part of their future, as they transform the face of cybersecurity. ”

She has been honored as one of the most influential women in IT security on numerous occasions (most recently as one of the “Five Most Influential Women in Security” by SC Magazine in 2014).  Mrs. Bace honed her information security expertise at the National Security Agency (NSA), where she was a charter member of the NSA’s Information Security (InfoSec) Research and Technology Group (R2), leading the Computer Misuse and Anomaly Detection (CMAD) Research program.  For this service, she received a Distinguished Leadership Award.  Her research collaborations with the FBI produced a manual for Computer Crime Investigation.  In 1996, she became the deputy security officer for the Computing, Information, and Communications Division of the Los Alamos National Laboratory.  The following year, she co-founded Infidel.
