Technical challenges and nitty-gritty details always fascinated Alexander, which led him into the IT field. What brought him to Information Security was the human factor. “Behind every phishing mail send, malware deployed, or information stolen, there is a human being with intent and a goal. I find the adversarial human relationship between attackers and defenders fascinating.” Now specializing in purple teaming and active defense, he enjoys the thrill of the hunt for adversaries along the kill chain.
Alexander holds GSEC, GCIA, GCIH, GDAT, GPEN, GXPN, and GCFA certifications. In his spare time, infosec conferences and CCC events are his natural habitat, where he can be found seeking new additions to his ever-growing collection of hoodies. For leisure he likes to listen to industrial music, lift weights, climb boulders, and immerse in VR gaming.
