Security Intelligence, Atlassian
I’ve been serious about hacking and security since 2002. Since discovering my first issue of Phrack (0x0b, 0x3b) I knew that security was for me. Before long, I was consuming text files from former hacker generations at a feverish and insatiable rate. I began driving 2+ hours to the Houston 2600 meeting every month, and a new world was revealed.
I’ve worked in IT for over 12 years, doing everything you can imagine – crawling in ceilings to run Ethernet, automation scripting with Python and Bash, virtualizing datacenters, analyzing malware, scouring pcaps, sysadmining, gathering threat intelligence & OSINT, compliance, disaster recovery, incident response, penetration testing, CNA/CNO, and broad scale offense/defense.
My clients, customers, and employers are from the financial sector, higher education, healthcare/medical, law firms, high-tech, and span from startups to SMBs to Fortune 5s. Regardless of what I’m working on, security is always the focal point. It is a mindset.
