Brian Johnson

With a combined 15 years in IT and security, I have a diverse set of experience that can serve a wide variety of your organization's needs.  I'm also an extremely hard worker, easy to get along with, and completely committed to my work.

I do a weekly podcast to help teach others what I'm learning about security, and speak regularly at security conferences and events in Minnesota, Wisconsin and Las Vegas.  

I have several relevant security certifications, including Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP), Offensive Security Certified Professional (OSCP), and Offensive Security Wireless Professional (OSWP).

When I'm not camped out behind a keyboard, I sing and play guitar in an acoustic duo called Sweet Surrender, I love leading kids music at church, and volunteer for organizations such as Concerns of Police Survivors and Feed My Starving Children.
