Thomas Lim is the Founder and CEO of COSEINC and SyScan. Previously as the head of IT Security in one of the largest IT services companies in Singapore, he was highly disappointed with the so-called Security seminars organised by the various vendors to be nothing but a sales and marketing pitch.
In 2004, he founded SyScan, a true-blue technical-based and vendor neutral IT security conference with a strong emphasis on cutting edge security research. Today, in its 8th year, SyScan is one of the most recognised security conference in the security community.
As for COSEINC, this is the only privately based and funded security research company in Singapore, which became highly prominent in the security community after the publication of “BluePill” – the first hardware based VM rootkit back in 2006.
