Bio: Zach Bevilacqua is just a security guy in a security world, hoping to enlighten the security boys and girls. In real life I’m a security engineer in the healthcare industry who believes compliance is achieved through security, not security being achieved through compliance. I’ve been called a certificate sherpa, a PowerShell oracle, and a computer wizard. I’m not not sure how true any of that is but you can make your own judgments.
