Shelby Ameling

Shelby Ameling

Vice President/Secretary/Treasurer

Shelby is a certified ethical hacker who loves to educate others on how to improve their security posture. With multiple degrees from Hawkeye Community College (including an AAS in Network Administration and Engineering and an AAS in Information Systems Management), her talents are only exceeded by the charm of her partner in crime, Miku, our Chief Executive Paw-fficer.



Chief Executive Pawficer

Miku loves to observe the goings on of the office and keep everyone in line. Constantly monitoring the yard and entry for intruders, she keeps the office secure.



Bark-based Intrustion Detection System

Max patiently waits for Miku to alert him of a potential threat and ensures that any would-be attacker is thwarted by shear fear as he barks incessantly until he feels the perimeter is safe. He occasionally continues to bark for good measure.
