Matt Virus

Cisco Security Engineer

Matt Virus (yes, real name) is an engineer @ Cisco (10+ years) , an above-average husband and father of 2, a fan of loud angry rock music, and a hardware junkie with tons of experience with build/hack projects. Whatever “it” is -- it can be disassembled and examined…it can be made more secure, more functional and more use useful. No fear of burned fingers, desks set on fire, or escape of the magic smoke here. BS/MS in MIS and information assurance, former DoD forensic and malware analyst, firm believer of local control and auditability of software/firmware. Lover of all things containerized and API-enabled, blackbelt in google-fu, passionate about facilitation, enablement, and helping people reach beyond their technical comfort zone. Fueled by monster energy.
