Curtis Franklin, Jr. is editor of Light Reading's Security Now. He is also Light Reading's editor for security and similarly spooky, scary topics. Curtis has been writing about technologies and products in computing and networking since the early 1980s. He has contributed to a number of technology-industry publications including Dark Reading, InformationWeek, Enterprise Efficiency, ChannelWeb, Network Computing, InfoWorld, PCWorld, HowStuffWorks, and ITWorld.com on subjects ranging from enterprise security to mobile enterprise computing and how insecticides actually kill things. Curtis is the author of hundreds of articles, the co-author of three books (including Cloud Computing: Technologies and Strategies of the Ubiquitous Data Center), and has been a frequent speaker at computer and networking industry conferences across North America and Europe. A new book on cloud security, sure to be a best-seller, is currently in the works. When not writing, Curtis is a painter, photographer, cook and multi-instrumental musician. He is active in amateur radio (KG4GWA), running, hiking, stand-up paddleboarding, and is a certified Florida Master Naturalist.
