Tiffany Strauchs Rad


I am the CEO and founder of Anatrope, Inc. which develops wireless automotive technologies for the security and data analytics industries. Prior to starting my company, I was the Manager of Operational Security for Embedded Systems at Cisco for their IoT and vehicle cyber security research. Before joining Cisco, I was a cyber security researcher for Battelle Institute at the Center for Advanced Vehicle Engineering (CAVE). I have been an Adjunct Professor in the computer science department at the University of Maine's Portland campus since 2004. I am also an Adjunct Professor in the School of Information at UC Berkeley teaching "W200: Cybersecurity in Context," since 2019.

I am on a few industry and standards committees such as the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) Vehicle Electrical System Security Committee, SAE's Vehicle Cyber Security Content Committee, and on the National Academies of Science NCHRP/TCRP Panel for Transportation and Critical Infrastructure Protection.

My independent research was listed as #4 in "Top 10 White Hat Hacks" by Bloomberg and I am a contributor to the book "Security in 2020." I was also featured in 2013 in the Discovery Channel’s documentary “The Real Story: Live Free or Die Hard,” based on the movie “Live Free or Die Hard,” and my industrial control system research was featured on the USA series, “Mr. Robot,” in the Season One episode titled ”Brave Traveler.”
