I've been using Python for IT security purposes for 10+ years. I work as a cyber security expert in a global financial institution.

I'm using (and writing) Python code for a wide range of tasks including offensive operations, low-level network code, distributed task management, knowledge management and internal auditing. Mostly harmless.
