Chief INFOSEC Officer Stratagem 1 Solutions

Jayson E. Street is the InfoSec Ranger at Pwnie Express ... He is also a Senior Partner at Krypton Security and CEO of Stratagem 1 Solutions.

Jayson battled a dragon during the Fire Run in Barcelona Spain. He 'accidentally' broke into a shark tank in the Dominican Republic and climbed the pyramid of Giza (until the guards carrying AK-47s expressed their displeasure). He consulted with the Secret Service in 2007 on the WIFI security of the White House, and has had tea with a Lebanese General in Beirut.

Jayson never finished High School but does have his GED. His first book is used as course material at four colleges in three countries (that he knows of), and he has spoken at numerous universities in the US and gave an eight hour lecture at the Beijing Institute of Technology in 2014. Outside of standardized education, Jayson has spoken five times at DEF CON, at every DerbyCon since its inception, and at many other Cons around the world.

Jayson is only one degree away from Kevin Bacon after awkward hugging Oliver Stone and Jimmy Fallon. He started in security and law enforcement over 25 years ago and has always striven to make things more secure. Jayson has been in the Information Security industry for over 15 years, and once broke into a high scale hotel in the South of France - barefoot - wearing Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles pajamas. It took him under 2 1/2 minutes to walk in and successfully compromise a bank in Beirut Lebanon. He was also noted as the best janitor of all McDonald's in the South East Texas region for 2 consecutive years.

Although Jayson has been hit by three cars while on foot, he has only been shot at once (they missed). He was Time Magazine's person of the year for 2006 and lived behind a dumpster for a summer when he was sixteen. Within two weeks, he was able to awkward hug the head of the N.S.A. in Vegas and two Chinese soldiers on the Great Wall of China. Jayson has had pizza on the Nile River in Egypt, within view of the Eiffel Tower in France, near the Forbidden City in Beijing and on the coast in Brazil.

Jayson has conducted successful social engineering engagements around the world from Jordan to Jamaica. He survived cancer, extreme falls, car accidents, two house fires and Twitter drama. He prides himself in spending most of his time working for a national financial institution as their resident hacker and the designer of their network defenses.

Jayson swam with dolphins in Singapore and a sea turtle in the Maldives. He has been sword fighting since the age of seven and has an extensive collection of swords from all over the world. He was asked to give his DEFCON 19 speech at an undisclosed government agency's headquarters (After smuggling in all the items that make the arsenal of his Vest of D00M, Jayson was then asked never to return). Jayson was quoted in The Rolling Stone Magazine, The Economist, Forbes and The Daily Oklahoman. He�s been interviewed on numerous television shows regarding security related topics. He also filmed a pilot for a TV show featuring hackers in a positive light (it never aired). He has held, or is currently holding, many industry certs such as CISSP, GSEC, GCIH, GCFA, IAM, IEM, Security+, CEH, etc...
