Jake Servaty joined the Black Hills Information Security team in February of 2019 as a penetration tester and security analyst. He graduated from Colorado State University with a BS in Computer Science and he is currently pursuing the Offensive Security Certified Professional (OSCP) certification. He approaches his job with a creative mindset, treating penetration tests as unique puzzles with each new phase building upon the previous one. Jake is dedicated to helping customers truly understand the cyber threats they may face, rather than just providing defenses. Though he is fairly new to the industry, Jake is experienced in a variety of disciplines including threat hunting, software development, command and control infrastructure analysis, system and network administration, technical challenge development, and vulnerability analysis. In Jake’s words: “I heard somewhere that a ‘hacker’ is just a person that spent more time on something than anyone else was willing to. That rings very true for me.”
