I’m Paul Benoit. I live in Seattle, where I secure the cloud.

I've been involved in cybersecurity since high school, when I competed inCyberPatriotand Capture-the-Flag competitions.

During college, I worked for the Crypsis Group, a Digital Forensics and Incident Response startup, as one of its earliest employees. We were later acquired by Palo Alto Networks in 2020. Crypsis is now known asUnit 42 Consulting.

Today, I work forBlock(formerly known as Square) doing cloud security.

In my free time, I like to make things and climb mountains.
