George Allison

ENGINEER

B.S., Computer Science (University of Colorado Boulder); FEMA NIMS ICS

George is a passionate technologist focused on practical solutions, and he brings diverse engineering-focused skills and experiences from his previous positions at Lumen Technologies, AppliedTrust, and the University of Colorado. 

Although he loves all aspects of cybersecurity, George is particularly enthusiastic about penetration testing because of the creativity and critical thinking required; he loves the thrill of hunting down vulnerabilities and finding a way to mitigate or manage them. The advent of IoT has also inspired George to think about security in ways he never thought possible — or perhaps ways that never should be possible.

When he’s outside, George spends time car camping, backpacking, bouldering, and hiking with his dog (Mar). He also loves to read, cook, play chess, and compete at trivia nights.
