Kyle Slosek is a security practitioner with several years of experience in enterprise Information Technology environments. Kyle works for a large IT company based in the D.C. Metro Area and has performed everything from certification and accreditation to penetration testing and forensics. He holds a Bachelor of Science in Information Technology, a Master of Science in Information Assurance, as well as several industry certifications.
Kyle's interest in computers started at a young age. When he was young, he was fascinated with the family computer and proceeded to build his own with used parts he found lying around or purchased on eBay (ironically, it was named Alexa...long before Amazon's). He was first interested in security after a home server he built was hacked. He was hosting his own website on a old desktop that was lying around when he realized that a hacker had defaced his site. This inspired him to pursue his career in security.
