About me

Location Berea, Ohio, United States
Introduction I am the creator of Fast-Track and the Social Engineer Toolkit and have been involved in the Information Security community for over nine years. I have performed thousands of penetration tests around the world, and now currently handle the entire security program internationally for a multi-billion dollar company. Prior to this, I was a Partner and VP of Consulting where I had key involvement building, training, and developing a team of highly skilled consultants primarily around the penetration testing arena. Before the consulting gig, I worked for the U.S. Marines where I was in the intelligence agency doing some pretty cool stuff. Deployed to Iraq twice and a couple other tours across the globe kept me occupied for 5 years. I've had the pleasure in speaking at some of the worlds largest security conferences including Defcon and Shmoocon. I am on the BackTrack development team and helped build the Metasploit Unleashed course and have discovered/published a number of zero-day vulnerabilities.
