Matthew Ciccariello obsesses about your network security over cold kale smoothies and during bike trips along the Schuylkill River in Philadelphia. When he’s not thinking he’s doing. During his previous time at AT&T, Merrill Lynch and The Jones Group, he honed his skills as a network architect and security professional. He managed and deployed routers, switches, firewalls, IDP, MDM, WiFi, BGP, PIM-SM, VPN, PCI CDE, SIEM, QoS and VoIP. He’s got a knack for protocol analysis and can hold his own in vulnerability scanning and penetration testing. If your eyes haven’t glazed over looking at those acronyms, you’ll be interested to know that he is certified as: a SFCP, CCNP, CCDP, SANS GPEN and CISSP. If you see him begging for CPE credits, toss him a webinar.
