Nick Chapel (CRYPTY MCCRYPTOFACE)
Dark Side of Crypto
Nick Chapel (@McCryptoFace) is a red team engineer for a major retailer, but if asked he would tell you that he’s really a purple teamer at heart. After spending a couple years in an incident response role, he turned to the dark side of the Force, where as a red teamer he uses his evil powers for good. His academic background was in religious studies, having done postgraduate research in the field of western esotericism. His many loves include cryptography, mysticism, reverse engineering, puppies, CTF competitions, fin-de-siècle British esoteric movements, lockpicking, the Oxford comma, and popping shells. Also coffee, which makes his enjoyment of all of the other things possible.
