Nick Bilogorskiy is a founding team member at Cyphort, a next-generation anti-malware startup, and is currently leading security research there. He came to Cyphort from Facebook where he was the chief malware expert and a security spokesperson for the company, keeping 1 billion active users safe and secure.

His Facebook focus was on annihilating botnets that targeted Facebook (e.g., Koobface) by developing countermeasures, remediating victims and working with law enforcement agencies on bad actor attribution and enforcement. Prior to joining Facebook, Nick managed virus research teams at SonicWALL and Fortinet.

Nick is skilled in reverse engineering, analysis, writing patterns and tracking malware, frequently quoted in the media. He presented and published research papers at major security conferences. He holds a Bachelor of Science degree in computing science and philosophy from Simon Fraser University in Vancouver, Canada, and a GIAC Reverse Engineering Malware (GREM) certification. He holds several patents in computer security.

Nick has been an angel investor since 2012, investing into 2-3 seed stage companies per year, focusing on two areas: social area and security. He invested in Petcube, Carbon and Uber, among others.

Nick Bilogorskiy is also the founder and President of the largest Ukrainian charity in California, Nova Ukraine, helping Ukraine by fighting corruption, providing humanitarian aid, and increasing awareness about Ukrainian culture in the US.
