Pieter Danhieux is a certified instructor for the SANS Institute, teaching military, government, and private organizations offensive techniques on how to target and assess organizations, systems, and individuals for security weaknesses. He is also one of the founders of the security and hacking conference BruCON in Belgium.

Pieter has worked in the cyber security space since 2002. He was one of the youngest persons ever in Belgium to obtain the Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) certification. He then obtained the Certified Information Systems Auditor (CISA) and the GIAC Certified Forensics Analyst program (GCFA) and is currently one of the select few people worldwide to hold the GIAC Security Expert (GSE) certification.

Pieter is Co-founder and Chief Architect of the Secure Code Warrior platform (, a gamified environment where developers and security testers can learn how to properly identify and fix security weaknesses in software. Until January 2015, he was part of the leadership at BAE Systems APAC in his role as Head of Delivery of the Applied Intelligence business unit. Before that, Pieter worked for seven years at Ernst & Young in Europe as one of their information security experts running a team of attack and penetration resources operating in the financial industry and telecommunication space.

SANS is by far the best hands-on training. Peter is very knowledgeable and knows how to transfer that to students. - Rob Brabers, Sincerus
