• 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 info at abs.ec.
  • For over 6 years, I worked at West Virginia University during the founding of its Information Security Services group, where I lead security research and continue to volunteer today as needed.
  • Since April 2019, I've been at Salesforce.com, Inc. (NYSE: CRM) doing product security and advanced security research of the global retail industry, eCommerce threat actors, and enterprise security platforms.
  • In my free time, you'll probably find me either breaking something old, learning something new, or helping someone selflessly.
  • Read more about me on LinkedIn, or contact me directly with any questions.
