More recently, Rob has performed numerous successful Red Team assessments against commercial Fortune 50 companies representing some of the best defensive teams in the industry.
Rob’s experience and expertise ranges from embedded and wireless devices in industrial control system networks to standard corporate IT infrastructures and domains. He is a frequent speaker at a number of well-known security conferences, including ShmooCon, DefCon, DerbyCon, CarolinaCon, Area41, RVASec, and HackCon; and has taught at BlackHat USA since 2013. He is the current CTO and Red Team Captain of the Mid-Atlantic Collegiate Cyber Defense Competition (CCDC). He has also served as a technical advisor for HBO’s show Silicon Valley and hosts his own show called “Metasploit Minute” for Hak5.
Rob has acquired a number of certifications and awards over the years, but the ones he holds above the rest are father, husband, and United States Marine.
