Security Consultant

EXPERIENCE
Lou has obtained several years of experience in information security roles by doing a variety of different tasks on both offense and defense including detection and monitoring, vulnerability management, and internal network and web application penetration testing. He initially spent three and a half years as a software developer before transitioning into an information security role.

PASSION FOR SECURITY
For as long as Lou can remember, he has been fascinated with computers, and from a young age began tinkering with them and learning how to program. He has always had a drive to understand how things really work and what makes them tick. After learning that one can make a computer do things it wasn’t intended to do, he was hooked. This mindset, along with growing up watching movies like The Matrix and Hackers, fueled his interest in security and an endless pursuit of knowledge and continuous learning.
