Hi. I'm Matthew!

I'm an Ethical Hacker, Online Privacy Advocate, and a Software Engineer.

Matthew Setter, Ethical Hacker, Privacy Advocate, and Software Engineer

I’m here to show you how to better protect your servers, and your code, whether it’s a web-based application, monolithic application, micro service, or a small shell script from malicious actors, such as hackers, identity thieves, and stalkers.

Why? Well, you’re a professional developer or systems administrator — but you’re also flat out. You have so many things going on, so many competing pressures. It's a tough gig!

You have to design, write, debug, test, deploy changes to your code and servers. And now you’re tasked with adding security into the mix. Not easy right?! Well, it doesn’t need to be hard either.

I’m here to help make your life easier, by showing you how to hack your systems and your code, so that you know how to think like a hacker so that you can defend yourself from them.

Each week I show you a tool, service, tip, trick, technique, or perspective that will help you level-up so that you’re ever-more prepared. I also discuss related areas, such as online privacy, so that you learn holistically.
