Sean or Seanie, born and raised on farm ๐Ÿšœ in County Tipperary ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ช Ireland. Studied computer science at NUI, Galway. Dropped out of a PhD program. Worked as white water Safety Kayaker ๐Ÿ›ถ and Raft Guide on the Ottawa River ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ฆ. When I went to university I took up kayaking, the following year I started coding for fun. These two events have played an important part in my life ever since. At first I just wanted to build a kayaking website, then computer security overtook kayaking as my passion. So here we are!

Worked for in Digg ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ’ป, Dropbox ๐Ÿ”, Patreon ๐Ÿ” and Truework ๐Ÿ” in ๐Ÿš€California ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ. And some others in Ireland ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ช& Canada ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ฆ. At Patreon & Truework I was the Head of Security. Each had about 30-50 folks ๐Ÿ‘จ๐Ÿฝโ€๐Ÿ’ป๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿฟโ€๐Ÿ’ป๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ’ป and where in hyper growth ๐Ÿ“ˆ. Building their security program while also securing a service under rapid ๐ŸŽ development was lots of fun. Coding, product development, hiring, risk planning, cybersecurity policies & procedures, software engineering, code review, architecture and design implementation, cloud infrastructure, software development, industry standards & compliance and more!
