Brian’s interest in security comes from some sage advice he received years ago while working the weekend shift in retail. After spending hours in a store hearing all about endpoint security, he knew that Information Security was the field he wanted to be in. Brian recently completed his Masters in Computer Information Systems with a concentration in security. In his free time he has worked on several projects with his raspberry pi, including using it to run his Christmas light show.
