He is one of the first graduates of both these programs and came out with a rich knowledge in applied security controls. His favorite portion of security deals with proactive forensics and how to balance both security and confidentiality, integrity, and availability within a given situation. Some of Courtney’s favorite technology to work with is Linux, FreeBSD (learning other BSDs), filesystems, web applications, and a new interest in Python programming. He feels that the Lord has truly blessed him with many opportunities in his life to serve Him, in having the opportunity to serve working and serving with X31 Technologies, serving on the Serve & Equip board of directors with David Moore, and getting to be a part of this great community, working to the glory of God and serving His kingdom.
