Troy Hunt is a Microsoft Regional Director and an independent Internet security researcher. He is well known for both his Internet security blog www.troyhunt.com, and his HaveIBeenPwned (HIBP) service, which aggregates data breaches and helps people establish if they’ve been impacted by malicious activity on the web.
