Introducing our Keynote Speaker!

We’re super excited to announce our Keynote Speaker, Phillip Wylie!

Phillip Wylie is an offensive cybersecurity instructor and practitioner with over two decades of information technology and cybersecurity experience. During his 9 year offensive cybersecurity career, he was worked as a pentester, web app pentester, and red team operator. When Phillip is not hacking, he is educating others. Phillip is the founder of The Pwn School Project, an education-focused cybersecurity organization. He co-authored the book, “The Pentester Blueprint: Starting a Career as an Ethical Hacker” based on his popular talk presented at numerous industry events. He is an Innocent Lives Foundation Ambassador and a ‘Hacking is NOT a Crime’ Advocate. Phillip’s uncommon journey into the field of cybersecurity is preceded by his colorful past as a pro wrestler, where he once wrestled a bear.
