My name is Nick Frichette and I'm a Staff Security Researcher, primarily focused on cloud, web application, and CI/CD exploitation. Previously, I worked as a Penetration Tester and Team Lead for a large financial services company.

In my free time I perform security research, participate in CTFs, and engage in community forums. In addition, I'm the primary maintainer of Hacking the Cloud, an encyclopedia of the techniques that offensive security professionals can use against cloud environments.

Aside from that, I'm fortunate to be a part of the AWS Community Builders Program.
