Security Confidential S13 E8 James Potter

This week on Dark Rhiino Security’s Security Confidential podcast, Host Manoj Tandon talks to James Potter. James is an Active Directory veteran with nearly 25 years in the field. A native of Detroit, James started his career at the University of Michigan where at the tender age of 17, he helped U of M develop their computer systems. For the next two decades, James earned his stripes in consulting with organizations like Ernst & Young and PwC before founding his own company, DSE, in 2019. At DSE, James leads a dynamic group of architects, engineers, and SMEs who help large international organizations secure and modernize their AD infrastructure. He currently resides in the Pacific Northwest where—like a true son of Michigan—he restores old cars in his spare time.
