Brian Fehrman has been with Black Hills Information Security (BHIS) as a Security Researcher and Developer for Active Countermeasures since 2014, but his interest in security started when his family got their very first computer. Prior to his career, Brian spent eight and a half years as a full-time student, obtaining a BS in Computer Science, an MS in Mechanical Engineering, and an MS in Computational Sciences and Robotics. Currently working towards a Ph.D. in Cyber Operations, Brian’s love of learning is evident. He enjoys being able to protect his customers from “the real bad guys” and his favorite aspects of security include internal-network pivot tests, red teaming, and hardware hacking. Outside of time spent working with BHIS, Brian is an avid Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu enthusiast, big game hunter, and enjoys home improvement projects.
