Joe Vest

Driven by his curiosity, perseverance, and passion for technology, Joe Vest's mantra for his work and teaching is: "Often the journey of an experience can be as valuable as the end."

As the owner of a security consulting company and a former Department of Defense Red Team Technical Lead, Joe brings more than 17 years of experience in penetration testing and application security to his role as a SANS instructor. He has also worked in numerous commercial sectors, which has given him extensive knowledge of cyber threats, tools, and tactics, including threat emulation and threat detection. Today, Joe is co-owner of MINIS, a security consulting company specializing in expert-level penetration testing, red team operations, cyber threat analysis, cyber threat emulation and replication, application security, vulnerability assessment and mitigation, and incident mitigation.

Joe joined SANS as an instructor in 2016 and currently teaches SEC564: Red Team Operations and Threat Emulation, a course that he co-authored. Joe loves seeing in his students the same determination that drives his own passion for technology. His favorite classroom interactions involve helping students overcome their doubts in their abilities, and seeing them thrive even in the face of setbacks. Joe's students not only gain access to his wealth of knowledge, they also get a mentor who teaches them how to engage, thrive, and enjoy their work in the InfoSec field.

Joe has a variety of professional certifications, including the OSCP, CISSP, GWAPT, GPEN, GCIA, and GMOB. When he's not teaching, running a company or evangelizing about cybersecurity, you'll find Joe out skateboarding with his son.
