Richard Deist

Game Security Lead @ Epic Games

Rick leads game security services at Epic Games which chiefly include Easy Anti-Cheat, an anti-cheat middleware that has helped to protect the experiences of over 100 million players. With an early background in game modding followed by stints in software and hardware engineering, he found a calling at their intersection in anti-cheat. He thrives on the challenge of continually adapting to fast-developing and low-level attacks on popular games, but secretly wishes everyone would just play fair.
