Hello, my name is Thomas Kastner. I am a IT security expert specialised in penetration testing (black box, white box and grey box) and secure software development. I graduated with a bachelors degree in 2011 at the University of Applied Science Upper Austria, Campus Hagenberg in Secure Information Systems. In addition to my bachelors degree I'm also in the master's programme Secure Information Systems, which I will graduate in the summer of 2013. During my studies I worked as a chairman for the local students association. I am also a member of "Hagenberger Kreis zur Förderung der digitalen Sicherheit", who is also active in the field of IT security and organizes the yearly security conference "Security Forum".
Since January 2013 I also work as a self-employed IT security consultant in the fields of red teaming (penetration testing, social engineering, and physical assessment) and secure software development.
