David CourseySr. Application Security Consultant nVisium
David Coursey is a family man that takes time out for Xbox, woodworking, and good whiskey. He forgets things due to years of rugby but is old enough to appreciate keeping notes in a paper notebook. David found his love for computers early, going with his dad to the computer store and watching him build 8086 clones.
After high school, David joined the US Army and spent some time as a Cav Scout. After leaving the Army, David started his career as a developer for a few small businesses. Since then, he has been in Systems Engineering and InfoSec for around 15 years. This work has taken him through positions in the Department of Defense, Intelligence Community, USSOCOM, and the Dept. of Veterans Affairs. David enjoys dissecting software and helping developers better understand how to create resilient applications.
David is the President of the Charleston, SC ISSA chapter, a Red Team member on Palmetto Cyber Defense Competition (PCDC), and runs the Capture the Flag (CTF) for bSides Charleston. You can find him speaking at smaller conferences or rambling about meaningless junk on Twitter.
