Interested in working together? Below is a small list of some of the most common services I perform.
Need your security posture assessed? How about an extra pair of red team hands? I offer testing for virtually any internet-connected device from webservers to IoT as well as social engineering, compliance testing (PCI, HIPAA. OWASP), incident response, data forensics and much more. If it can be broken, I will break it!
When it comes to storing or transmitting data, ensuring that is is secured is a critical aspect that must be handled with care.

Looking for an affordable front-end dev to give your new site or software suite some stylish flare?
