Reuben Paul

Reuben who goes by the name RAPst4r is a 9 years old kid attending the Harmony School of Science in Austin, TX. He is an invited speaker, delivering awareness talks on the importance of teaching CyberSecurity to kids and parents. He has been featured at several industry leading Information Security conferences, delivering talks and keynotes at RSA, DerbyCon, (ISC)2 Security Congress, Houston Security Conference, Ground Zero InfoSec Summit in New Delhi, BSides Austin, and Hack In The Box (HITB) HaxPo conference in Amsterdam. His keynote talks on “Creating a Safe and Secure Cyber World for kids (by a kid)”, “Developing r00t-kidz: The Future of Cybersecurity” and his debut talk entitled “InfoSec from the mouth of babes (or an 8 year old)” at DerbyCon, has been quoted and referenced by several information security sources and news agencies that call him a “Child Hacker". They have become a source of inspiration to kids and adults alike to start teaching CyberSecurity to kids.

With the help of his parents and industry leaders, Reuben also founded a cybersecurity awareness and education organization called CyberShaolin which has the mission to educate, equip and empower kids with cybersecurity knowledge, using videos and games that he is developing. CyberShaolin is a non-profit organization and Reuben would like you to get involved and join hands with him to raise cybersecurity awareness in the community.

Reuben is also honored to become the youngest person to have received the Shaolin Do Kung Fu Black Belt in America which was featured in Fox TV news channel Austin story “7 year old earns Black Belt” and is a 2nd degree black belt now (earned August 26, 2015). He was the gold medalist in the 2014 USA Gymnastics State competition for the ‘rings’ category and one of the top 10 gymnasts in the 2013 State finals. When he was two years old, Reuben was also crowned as America’s Most Beautiful Baby by New Star Discovery. Reuben attributes his success to his Christian faith and believes and lives by the motif that his talents and skills are God's gift to him and what he does with them is his gift to God. His twitter handle is @RAPst4r.
