About me

• Senior Security Researcher at Invicti Security (Acunetix, Netsparker). • German citizen, residing in Malta. • Certifications include OSCP, CISSP, eWPTX / eWAPTX, and Security+. With 20+ years of experience in software and web development, I have a solid understanding of how programs and web applications are being designed, created, and tested. My own development background allows me to relate to other developers, to anticipate the mistakes they make – and to pinpoint the resulting security issues. Having been an independent software vendor with 30,000+ customers from 40+ countries, I understand not only the views and demands of developers, but those of management as well. If you would like to contact me outside of XING, please look me up on LinkedIn, send an email to WEB@FL7.DE, or follow/reach out on Twitter (@mussler).
