Matt Svensson

Matt Svensson - Founder

Matt started his career in cybersecurity and IT in 2009, leading technical units during combat operations in Iraq. After leaving the United States Army in 2012, he was unable to land a job in IT nor IT security so went back to school and earned his Master's Degree in Computer Science. Since graduating, Matt has managed MSSP security analysts at SecureWorks and is now responsible for developing and implementing the Security Operations program at BetterCloud.

Inspired by Hackers for Charity, We Defend Charities was formed to help charities with their cybersecurity while mentoring others to help launch their careers.
