Rich Mogull, one of the more prominent analysts covering the hacker/security space, is leaving Gartner Research to take a stab at private consulting.

Mogull (left), a research vice president in Gartner's Information Security and Risk practice, is leaving on August 24th to pursue independent consulting gigs that fall outside of a non-compete agreement.

He also plans to resume blogging about Internet/computer security issues at Securoris.com. Earlier this year, Gartner barred all its analysts from private blogging about the topics they covered, a move that forced Mogull and others to cut back on private commentary.

Mogull is the second high-profile security analyst to leave Gartner in recent times, following Amrit Williams, who joined BigFix as chief technology officer.
