Terrence Williams

Since 2011, Terrence Williams has embraced the United States Marine Corps saying, "Grow Where You Are Planted." As an active duty Marine, Terrence was placed into the cybersecurity world to satisfy "The needs of the Marine Corps." Turns out, being planted in the cybersecurity role is the best place for Terrence to grow his passion for Digital Forensics & Incident Response (DFIR). Currently Terrence Williams works in a Defensive Cyber Operations billet that requires him to conduct various duties in the DFIR realm. His young career has led him to operating on multiple enterprise networks supporting military operations that expand across the world.

Terrence's thirst for knowledge is the primary fuel for his passion for the various DFIR avenues. Terrence's background in DFIR covers smartphone and Windows forensics, including, vulnerability discovery and analysis, threat hunting, reverse engineering malware, network security monitoring, and Python coding. Terrence has participated in building multiple standard operating procedures for the up and coming Marines that will be in various cyber operation roles.

Terrence alternative passion is to share his knowledge with the world. At an early age, Terrence found that people around the world crave knowledge and need the opportunity to gain it. He has begun building his social platform to drive his passion by being a guest blogger on www.smarterforensics.com. The guest blog appearance has inspired Terrence to build his own website Life is a Game of Choices (www.liagoc.com) to further expand his brand. Terrence is excited to fulfill his passion for sharing knowledge as a SANS Mentor to further reach people that want to feed their passion for knowledge.

Outside of work, Terrence finds his passion in sports, dog training, reading, and being a connoisseur of the world's food and spirits.
