Ben Bornholm

Ben (@CptOfEvilMinion) is not new to creating workshops as this is his third time creating a DEFCON workshop, yet he has never actually been to DEFCON in person until this year! Ben crafted his whimsical presenting style from being President of RIT’s security club previously known as RC3.

During the day Ben fights off cyber hooligans as a DART engineer at At night Ben is the author of his blog where he discusses topics in security that interest him such as incident response, threat hunting, Osquery, and DevSecOps.
