Steve Kirby


Steve Kirby has been a Unix systems administrator for over 25 years. Just how far beyond 25 years remains a closely guarded secret. For much of that time Steve has been interested in security issues, largely as a means of promoting paycheck continuity. He holds several IT and security certifications and currently works as a Security Engineer for Brightsprings Health Services in Louisville, KY.
