About Me

Patrick Riggs

Germany, 2015

I’m an IT professional, father, and counter-culture enthusiast living the expat life abroad with his wife and two sons.  Topics on this site range from web development and hacking, the genius of Joe Strummer, and why the American love of hops is a fallacy.

You can find my rather sparse github account here.  I am an unabashed SANS fanboi.  My technical credentials include:

  • GIAC Penetration Tester (GPEN)
  • GIAC Certified Incident Handler (GCIH)
  • GIAC Web Application Penetration Tester (GWAPT)
  • GIAC Python Coder (GPYC)
  • GIAC Advisory Board Member
  • Certified Scrum Master (PSM I)
  • Security+
  • Certified Ethical Hacker (C|EH)
