His goal is to secure companies by educating their employees on the methods used by attackers, identifying vulnerabilities, and mitigating issues through appropriate levels of awareness and security.
He has launched a line of professional social engineering training and pen testing services. His goal is to help companies remain secure by educating them on the methods the “bad guys” use. Analyzing, studying, dissecting then performing the very same attacks used by malicious hackers on some of the most recent attacks (i.e. Sony, HB Gary, LockHeed Martin, etc), Chris is able to help companies stay educated and secure.
