Hal Denton joined the Black Hills Information Security (BHIS) team in December 2021. In his role as a Security Analyst, he works DFIR engagements/development, as well as hunting and threat detection creation. Hal started his career over 20 years ago, moving through different roles such as help desk, system admin, security engineer, incident response, digital forensics, malware analysis, threat hunting, threat intel, research, and SOC lead. Hal says, “I love the fact BHIS is trying to provide an easier on-ramp for the next generation of security professionals… to be a part of the family was a no-brainer.” Outside of work, Hal enjoys spending quality time with his family, disconnecting from technology by going backpacking through the woods, and a variety of hobbies such as 3D printing, home improvement, and gardening.
