I am

Steve Giguere

Cyber Security and Cloud Native Enthusiast

Hello!

I started my cyber security life by being kicked out of high school computing class for privilege escalation on the school linux system.
Since then I've spent time in the aero industry writing software to ensure airplane engines didn't crash, the telecom industry ensuring that calls were connected and the automotive industry improving velocity and efficiency. With quality, safety and security as a focus for over 25 years in software development, I've come full circle as a dedicated DevSecOps champion, securing cloud native applications.
Prior to joining Aqua Security I was a Lead Solution Architect for the Software Integrity Group at Synopsys, focusing on scalable and secure CI/CD pipelines.


I also have an occasional podcast and blog called Codifyre, and represent Great Britain at playing Ultimate Frisbee.

What I do

Talk Good

Public Speaking at Meetups and Conferences about DevSecOps.

Coding

Python is my "goto" language but I'm sniffing around Golang.

Music

You need to keep the creative side sharp. I play guitar and drums.

Writing and Podcasting

I love to blog and record podcasts. Look me up on iTunes
