A system to monitor and correct driver behavior like the one dreyev offers can present carriers with the opportunity to take telematics into the realm of loss prevention and risk mitigation.

Chief Executive Officer & Founder of Code Dx
Dr. Anita D’Amico took on the role of CEO of Code Dx, Inc. after it was spun-out from Applied Visions, Inc. (AVI). She refers to herself as “a starter-upper” who develops a vision and fuels it with the energy, communication and leadership needed to make that vision a reality. She has done that repeatedly throughout her 35+ years in advanced technology. Anita created the Secure Decisions division of Applied Visions, Inc. in 2000, to develop new technologies to enhance cyber situational awareness, and built it into a recognized leader in government-sponsored cybersecurity research. The technologies that now comprise the Code Dx Standard and Enterprise Editions as well as our open-source Code Pulse aid to application penetration testing were originally developed by Secure Decisions under Anita’s leadership. Although Anita has worked for more than 20 years in the cybersecurity domain – starting as the head of Northrop Grumman’s first Information Warfare team – her background is different from most. She is a human factors psychologist, a specialist in cybersecurity situational awareness, and a security researcher. Anita is an expert in how security decisions are made, and takes on the user’s rather than the engineer’s perspective. At Code Dx, Inc. Anita bridges gaps. She looks for application security barriers and works with the Code Dx team to develop solutions to overcome them; those barriers could be lack of awareness, cost, difficulty in using AppSec tools and processes, or interpreting the results. To address the awareness gap, Anita has implemented a program that offers Code Dx for free to qualified educational institutions teaching secure coding practices. She is also bridging gaps between potential customers and access to Code Dx by building a robust reseller program that makes it easier for people in various parts of the world to take advantage of Code Dx’s easy and affordable application vulnerability correlation and management system, and to get support and services from local suppliers. A recent Forbes article named Anita D’Amico as one of “five cool women in security” who serve as role models for young women entering the field.
