I'm a Austin Texas based Cyber Security Engineer, currently working at Rapid7 helping clients become secure through penetration testing security audits.
In my free time time, you can catch DJing and producing music as NGHTHWK, mountaineering in Colorado or the Pacific Northwest, or working on cool new projects (like this website).
I'm Matt Hagan, a Software Security Engineer and Penetration Tester from Colorado. I studied at Worcester Polytechnic Institute, where I got my Bachelor of Science in electrical engineering, computer engineering, and computer science with a concentration in cyber security. As a security consultant, I conduct internal network, external network, web application, wireless, phishing, and vishing based penetration testing for top Fortune 500 companies.
