Hello World! My name is Dustin Decker. I am a skilled Information Security Analyst with over twenty years of experience in risk management framework (RMF), systems development life cycle (SDLC), security life cycle, management of a wide range of vulnerabilities and threats, fundamental business analysis, and project management. I specialize in providing IT security expertise and guidance in support of security assessments and continuous monitoring for government (FISMA & NIST) and commercial clients. I am comfortable in heterogenous environments with tens of thousands of hosts.
I am currently in my senior year pursuing my second bachelor’s degree in applied Cybersecurity (BACS) with the SANS Technology Institute. I anticipate graduating in May of 2024.
A US Navy veteran, I saw six of seven continents before my twenty fourth birthday. Operations Desert Shield/Desert Storm, Koonz Class and Spruance Class floating target, expert rifleman/expert pistol man, combat action ribbon. I like things that go boom. (But let’s be honest, I don’t like surprise booms anymore.)
Cancer survivor, twice!
Love the great outdoors.
I Love Dogs.
