Matt Andreko

Senior Security Consultant

EXPERIENCE
Matt has been working in Information Technology for 20 years. In a former life, Matt spent many years working at a tiny local Internet Service Provider, learning everything he could about various network protocols, hardware devices, and thinking outside the box in the days before Google. Eventually, he ended up as a software developer, writing code to automate processes and solve all of life’s problems. Using this skillset, he was able to find a new home in the security industry, writing custom tools, and solving complex problems often faced by security professionals.

EDUCATION & CERTIFICATIONS

  • Offensive Security Certified Professional (OSCP)
  • Offensive Security Certified Expert (OSCE)

PASSION FOR SECURITY
Matt really enjoys puzzles and figuring out how things work. As a young child, he would take apart all the electronics in the house and put them back together. This sense of curiosity and the thirst for knowledge really drives him. In the more recent years, Matt has started mentoring students who show promise with security but lack a sense of direction.
