My name is Tyler and I have been working in the IT industry as a desktop support technician for the past six years. Currently, I am in the process of developing new skills in information security, specifically incident response and penetration testing. I am extremely interested in dissecting adversarial tactics and techniques in order to determine the best means of defense.
