HI! I’M DANA

Hey there, I’m Dana, aka SilverStr.  I’ve spent decades as a security architect that focuses on helping secure software, data, and infrastructure.

You might say I’ve been on and led Blue and Red Teams well before it was even a thing.

When I am not helping to build and grow software companies focused on developing security tools I’m advising others on how to build and break their own applications and environments. As both a Microsoft Regional Director and Security MVP, I spend a great deal of time on security (de)engineering in the cloud.

​Lately, I’ve challenged myself to be more on the Purple team, shifting more on my offensive tradecraft to help developers and IT administrators see the demonstrable impact of exploitation on vulnerabilities in their work.
