About Me

My name is D.J. Moore and I work in the Information Security industry. I share articles about that which I am learning and experiences of what I encounter on the path to more success in this growing industry.

Professionally

I am currently employed by Stride Learning. I help the business work with its technology-related risks as part of the Security & Compliance Team. Our team enables the business to operate securely, but openly. Our organization is cloud-first and that is something our team embraces. I work mostly with Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure services. I also help maintain compliance and reporting.

Personally

I have had an unending passion for technology since I was a child, when our family purchased its first personal computer in 1998, which has slowly led me down a path to Information Security. I love learning about how things work, from automatic transmissions and combustion engines to SQL injections and astrophysics. There is always something new to learn.
