Hello, and welcome to my website/blog. In case we haven’t met yet, my name is Bronwen Aker, I have been an Internet professional since before it was cool and have experience in web design and development, technical training, and public speaking.

These days, however, I work in cybersecurity. The transition started in 2017 when I returned to college full-time to pursue a degree in cybersecurity. Since then, I have achieved both a bachelors and a master of science, both in cybersecurity. I am also an alum of the 2nd ever SANS CyberTalent Immersion Academy for Women. Courtesy of that program, I also possess three GIAC certifications related to different aspects of cybersecurity.

GIAC Certifications: GSEC, GCIH, GCFE

While I was in school, I worked as a contractor for a variety of cybersecurity companies, including the SANS Institute and Black Hills Information Security, where I now work full time editing pentest and vulnerability assessment reports and helping with other projects.

Other minutiae includes the following:

  • I’m a geek, and have been since long before it was cool.
  • I’m a well-trained human, equally fond of dogs, cats, birds, reptiles, and other critters of various shapes and sizes.
  • I like Star Wars and Star Trek.
  • Of course Han shot first.
  • The Answer is 42.
  • Beer is proof God loves us and wants us to be happy.
  • Scientific method can be applied to anything.
  • There is no such thing as too many books.
