About

Mike Hollyman is a distinguished engineer at Verisign in the cyber strategy and research group under the technology and security organization. In this role, he focuses on internet routing security, denial-of-service (DoS) threats, routing efficiency, and next-generation networking protocols. Mike works with numerous private sector, government, and community organizations as conduits for both learning and sharing information in ways that enhance the overall internet and service delivery for Verisign.

Mike joined Verisign in 2019 and spent his first two years with the company in the architecture organization.

Before joining Verisign, he was a UNIX administrator for the College of Engineering at the University of Illinois.
