I'm Evan

I'm also a Christian*, a husband, a father, a grandfather, a friend, a business leader, a CISO (that's Chief Information Security Officer to the layman), a hacker, a Certified (SCUBA) Rescue Diver, a biker (Harleys mostly), a welder (not professionally), an American Mexican (like a Mexican trapped in an American body), a cancer survivor, a recovered alcoholic, a harsh self-critic, a problem solver, a problem creator, and LOTS of other things.


My world, like yours, is far from perfect. My world, like yours, is pretty f@cked up sometimes.


Regardless of my imperfections, and despite myself (I'm always my own worst enemy), my world is REAL and my world is f@cking AWESOME! The truth is, SO IS YOURS!


Welcome to my world.


*DISCLAIMER: The words "Christian" and "religion" or "religous" are often misunderstood and misused. I'm a Christian, but I mostly despise religion. I call myself "a dirty Christian". A future blog post here.

32 Years


500+ Projects





Before Money


I've done a lot of sh*t

I need to write something here too?! WTF

Social With Me :


What I do

NOTE TO SELF: Write something here too. Basically, I think about sh*t, break sh*t, fix sh*t, solve sh*t, and help other people with sh*t. I'll fill this in with some details. Promise.

I dunno. I guess I’ll put some more words here too. So many flippin’ words!


The Mission

Fix the broken industry.




Yeah, I'm ALWAYS working on "projects"! Maybe you'd like to help me?



ADHD is my superpower. You read that right!


Real Problem Solutions Experience

Imagine taking a guy with ADHD and giving him a mission (purpose). Now, take this same guy and somehow give him 30+ years doing what he was built to do.

1984 - 1992

Early Days


OK, I guess.

I did a lot of things that I guess you’d call “illegal” in today’s world. Everything was driven by curiousity and showing off to friends. Using things beyond their intent or whatever boundaries there were. Thank God for the Statute of Limitations!

2008 - Present



and various other titles

I know I’m biased, but this is the BEST information security consulting company on the planet. It’s the best because the PEOPLE who work here are the best!

100+ employees ALL devoted to the MISSION.

2010 - Present

CISSP Mentor Program


And Instructor

I was told we have a shortage of talent in the information security industry. So, I decided to offer free training to anyone/everyone.

In the first year, we had six students. Last year, we had 21,000+ students from 150+ countries! This has been an AMAZING ride so far.

1993 - 2008


You Can get paid for this?!

Coming of age

There was a chapter of life before FRSecure, filled with crazy information security adventures! Working for companies like Jasc Software (makers of PaintShop Pro), US Bank, United Health, Wells Fargo, MGI Pharma, etc.

2017 - Present



And Various Other Titles

A SaaS platform to serve partners, customers, and underserved markets with proven solutions that we’ve learned from serving 1000s of customers over the years.

We made cool things here like the S2Score, S2Org, S2School, S2Vendor, S2PCI, S2Team, S2Me, and others.

2013 - 2014

Target Special Litigation Committee (SLC)

Legal Team Consultant

The Target Breach of 2013 was arguably the most widely recognized breach in history. Somehow I got hired by a group of high-powered, highly-skilled lawyers investigating the claims in derivative litigation.

It was a wild 21 months! If you want to read the SLC’s motion to dismiss, you can read it here.

A lot more to add

Work in progress I suppose.



Most people say good things, but some are afraid to say anything. Telling the truth without beating around the bush is appreciated by some and offensive to others. If you know me, you know that I appreciate EVERYONE'S perspective.

I don’t do spam. I don’t eat it and I don’t send it. Not to mention, it’s also illegal!

I’ll write a privacy policy soon (that you won’t read).
