I have been doing information security and related work my entire professional career, since earning my bachelor's degree from the Missouri University of Science & Technology (formerly the University of Missouri-Rolla). I have worked for public, private, government and non-profit organizations in the defense, finance, manufacturing and healthcare industries including the National Security Agency, JPMorgan Chase and Rockwell Automation. Currently I am the Chief IT Auditor for Marshfield Clinic Health System. I hold the CISM, CISA, CRMA, GSNA, GCFA, CCSK, CEH and CHS certifications and I am ITIL v3 Foundation certified. I specialize in information technology assessment, audit, compliance, control, governance and security.

I've been involved with OWASP since about 2002. You can reach me at matthew dot chalmers at owasp dot org.
