Peter Gamache

I used to think my name was unique, then the Internet fixed that. I'm the IT security guy from Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA.

From giant enterprises down to sole proprietorships, I have worked in IT Security for over 20 years. Variously, I have done: design, implementation, troubleshooting, architecture, auditing, automation, penetration testing and change management. I currently work for a Fortune 500 firm in the retail sector.

For fun (and a fee), I perform freelance security assessments including network, application and device penetration testing.

I'm co-founder of a cool project that will make life easier for people with high-level IT audit and break/fix responsibility, called Congruence.

Outside my career, I volunteer for a number of different things, including:
My online presence:
  • Email: My domain is "" and my name is "peter"... put the two together.
  • Signal (encrypted SMS)
Professional Memberships:
  • ISC(2), Twin Cities MN Chapter
  • ISACA, Minnesota Chapter
