Tim Garcia

Timothy Garcia is a seasoned security professional who loves the challenge and continuously changing landscape of defense. Tim started his career as an engineer in IT and after working on a few security incidents related to Code Red and Nimda; he realized he had found his calling. Tim currently works as an Information Security Consultant for a Fortune 100 financial institution and has expertise in systems engineering, project management and information security principles and procedures/compliance. Tim previously worked for Intel and served in the military.

Tim is as passionate about teaching security as he is performing it and receives the greatest joy when he sees the look in a student's eye when something they never quite understood finally makes sense.

Tim holds the CISSP, GSEC, GCIH and NSA-IAM certifications.  He has extensive knowledge of security procedures and legislation such as Sarbanes-Oxley, GLBA, CobiT, COSO, and ISO 1779.

When Tim is not defending systems, he enjoys playing sports, snowboarding and most of all spending time with his wife and four children.
