Instructor Biography

Derek Armstrong, Information Security Tester

My original degree was in mechanical engineering and I have an MBA. However, I have worked in information technology for the last fifteen years. For the last five years I have worked as a security tester, and before that a functional and performance tester. I've really enjoyed working in the IT field, and would now like to share some of the things I've learned along the way to help others out.
