Red Tiger Security’s Daniel Michaud-Soucy Featured Speaker at the 2012 International Liquid Terminals Association Conference

Daniel Michaud-Soucy, who has been one of the Network Engineers for Red Tiger Security since 2010, has been invited to speak at this year’s ITLA (International Liquid Terminals Association) Conference. Dan started his career as a Computer Engineer for the Canadian government, and then started performing cyber security assessments and audits for Red Tiger Security. He was able to leverage his embedded and electrical engineering background and computer coding skills to switch careers into cyber security for critical infrastructure.

Over the past few years, Dan has been a dedicated and innovative resource for Red Tiger Security. He moved to Houston, Texas in late 2010 to be closer to our headquarters, and he has met every challenge and exceeded expectations. He assisted in the complete revamp of our 5-day SCADA Security training course, and has been a pivotal asset in leading our onsite technical teams for SCADA Vulnerability Assessments.

Dan will be presenting his topic “Vulnerabilities to Cyber Attacks: Are You in Control of Your Terminal System?” at the upcoming ITLA conference in Houston, Texas. The conference is scheduled for May 21-23, 2012, and the program is now online at this link. If you are planning to attend the conference, or happen to be in the Houston area that week, you will enjoy Dan’s timely presentation. Contact us if you want to schedule a dinner or offsite meeting during the event.

Thanks Dan!

Red Tiger Security’s Brian Meixell featured at Texas Austin Bsides Conference

Brian Meixell, our Network Engineer based in Austin, participated in the Texas B sides conference this past Friday. He was on the Penetration Testers panel and contributed to the discussion entitled “Testers Tools of the Trade.”  Brian has an excellent foundation of electrical engineering, computer engineering, embedded firmware hacking, and a strong skill set in penetration testing.

After spending the past several years focused on SCADA and Control Systems, Brian has been able to round out his expertise by focusing his penetration testing and vulnerability assessment skills on critical infrastructure. He has a perfect blend of experience and skill sets that lends itself nicely for the types of projects that our team is involved in.

We are proud of Brian’s career growth and for being invited to speak at B sides. More information about the conference can be found here.

Cheers Brian!
