Ryan Nicholson

Ryan\'s passion for information technology started in 2001 when he found himself constantly trying to make his high school\\\'s computers and even calculators do things that they weren\\\'t exactly intended to do. They lacked games, so he learned how to create some. Yes, some may call this hacking. Ryan called it \\\"fun\\\", which led to attending college with intentions of becoming a software engineer. During school, Ryan obtained an internship with a very cybersecurity-minded organization -- the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA). Ever since then, he’s been hooked on cybersecurity. Ryan is the author for the new SEC488: Cloud Security Essentials, co-author of SEC541: Cloud Security Monitoring and Threat Detection, and an instructor for SEC530: Defensible Security Architecture and Engineering.
