Phil 'Soldier of FORTRAN' Young

Philip Young, aka Soldier of FORTRAN, is a leading expert in all things mainframe hacking. Having spoken and taught at conferences around the world, including DEFCON, RSA, BlackHat and keynoting at both SHARE and GSE Europe, he works very hard to teach and show how easy it is to red team (and blue team) mainframes. Since 2013 Philip has released tools to aid in the testing of mainframe security and contributed to multiple opensource projects including Nmap, and metasploit, allowing those with little mainframe capabilities the chance to test their mainframes. His hope is that through raising awareness about mainframe security more organizations will take their risk profile seriously.
