Everyone at Facebook loved having Dr. Baldwin come with the Enigma Machine. It was hands down one of the best speakers we’ve had come to address our Security team in a while. Thanks so much.

Dropbox has been blessed to have some terrific speakers the past few years, but the session with Dr. Enigma and the machine was truly exceptional. I got an avalanche of thanks for arranging the event.

Thank you for coming to CNET HQ in San Francisco and telling us the fascinating history of the world’s greatest hack — and for letting us all touch and play with your Enigma machine! So amazing!

“Super interesting session. [Dr Enigma is] incredibly knowledgeable about the topic and had a real life Enigma machine for us to look at and try. In addition to it being interesting and fun, there were several lessons that you could take from a security point of view that are still very much applicable today” – Software Engineer, Facebook London
