Dana has spent decades as a security architect that focuses on helping secure software, data, and infrastructure. You might say he’s been on and led Blue and Red Teams well before it was even a thing. When he’s not helping to build and grow software companies focused on developing security tools he’s advising others on how to build and break their own applications and environments. As both a Microsoft Regional Director and Security MVP, he spends a great deal of time on security (de)engineering in the cloud.
Lately, he’s challenged himself to be more on Purple team, shifting more on his offensive tradecraft to help developers and IT administrators see the demonstrable impact of exploitation on vulnerabilities in their work. He is a director of OWASP Vancouver, and is the #1 ranked Canadian hacker on TryHackMe where he teaches others how to hack apps and infrastructure.
