Hello, I’m Elliot Speck offline, and Tecuane online. I’m an OSCP-certified information security consultant living in Victoria, Australia.
My personal areas of research and expertise lie in cloud computing and containerised architectures, social engineering, and systems security, but I also do extensive work with web applications, industrial control systems, and network infrastructure too.
I have a strong background in BSD, Linux, macOS, and Windows system administration in both a server and endpoint capacity. I spend a good deal of my free time time working on making things perform varying degrees of undefined behaviour for my own amusement.
I currently work as a senior consultant for Sense of Security, a specialist information security firm in Australia.
I previously worked at PricewaterhouseCoopers Australia as a cyber security consultant, and before that I worked at RamNode as a virtualisation technician and system administrator. In my own time I make things that are sort of cool if you squint a bit, disassemble and break things, and help run a myriad of small projects around the internet.
Some of my personal work ends up on GitHub. I mostly write Go and Ruby, but know a good number of other programming languages too, such as C, Python, and Rust. I spend a lot of my time around hypervisors and containers, and I’m a huge fan of cloud computing. While I predominantly work on the security side of things, I spend some of my free time in a devops role too.
I post a lot of quality opinions on Twitter. They are mostly about information security, internet culture, or Go.
