He's a co-organizer for MontréHack, a monthly CTF workshop in Montréal (duh). If you see him in a bar someday, do not approach him or he'll probably start a rant about tabs being the superior indentation character or about how cars ruin cities.

Olaf Hartong Security researcher, FalconForce

Olaf Hartong is a security researcher at FalconForce and a Microsoft Security MVP. He specialises in understanding the attacker tradecraft and thereby improving detection capabilities. He has a varied background in blue and purple team operations, network engineering, and security transformation projects.

Rémi Langevin Threat Hunter,

Rémi has been working in a blue team for a few years as a threat hunter and developper.

He also thinks that tab could be a great indentation character but everybody's using spaces. As such it is more practical to use spaces.
