• My name is Austin Siford, but I'm also known online under the pseudonym Austin Dizzy.
  • I was born and raised in Martinsburg, West Virginia; I studied computer and political science at West Virginia University in Morgantown, West Virginia; and I currently live in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
  • I’ve been doing this computer thing for more than a decade now, focusing my efforts in security research, software development, private intelligence, and security awareness. More details on abs.ec.
  • For more than 6 years, I worked at West Virginia University in the Information Security and Privacy Office, where I continue to volunteer my services pro bono. Most recently, since April 2019 I've worked at Salesforce.com, Inc. doing Product Security.
  • In my free time, you'll find me stargazing, hiking, and appreciating nature; playing chess, casual video games, or competitive esports; or reading, contributing to the community, and spending time with my friends and family.
