Jack Rhysider

Host of the Darknet Diaries podcast.

I produce a podcast called Darknet Diaries. It features true stories from the dark side of the Internet. Stories from hackers or those who have been attacked. Previously I spent 10 years working for a fortune 500 company as a network security engineer. Configuring firewalls and IDSs as well as building a SIEM and SOC to detect threats in the network.
