Philip Young

Co-Founder, ZedSec390

Philip Young is a leader in legacy system security. Having spoken at multiple conference around the world, including DEFCON, Black Hat and keynoting at SHARE Europe, he has established himself as the thought leader in this space. Since 2013 Young has released tools to aid in the testing of mainframe security and contributed to both the Nmap and Metasploit projects, allowing those with little mainframe capabilities the chance to test their mainframes. In addition to speaking, he has built mainframe security programs for multiple Fortune 100 organizations starting from the ground up to create a repeatable testing program using both vendor and public toolsets. His hope is that through raising awareness about mainframe security more organizations will take their risk profile seriously.
