Keith started on his path toward a career in Information Security in the mid-90’s as a kid playing Blizzard’s popular PC title, “Diablo”. It was at that time he learned how to use Telnet to spoof multiple connections to Blizzard’s online platform, “Battle.net“, using unauthenticated Diablo trial accounts. Needless to say it wasn’t long before he became hooked on text user interfaces and networking protocols.
Keith graduated from Keene State College with a B.A. in Psychology in 2009, and recently attended classes in Computer Science at University of New Hampshire – during which time he also interned at Veracode as a Code Security Engineer. Since then, Keith has worked as an Engineer on the Customer Success team at Rapid7, and now works as a Trust & Security Engineer at Bugcrowd. In his free time he continues to develop his skills in Web Application Development and Security, and will be co-training the “Offensive Web Hacking” course at DerbyCon 7.0 with his mentor, Casey Dunham.
