Michael Allen is a senior security analyst and red team practice lead who joined the team at Black Hills Information Security (BHIS) in 2019. Having started hacking and picking locks at an early age, Michael has since turned “doing things he’s not supposed to do and going places where he’s not supposed to be,” into an impactful career. He has a multitude of infosec certifications, and his “think like a criminal” mindset on security assessments brings incredible value to the clients he serves. Pen testing isn’t just a job for Michael; it’s a way of life, in which he brings fun, creativity, and passion to every hack, breach, and bypass he attempts.
