Aries Security was founded in 2008 by Brian Markus to provide Security Research, Education, and
Awareness Worldwide. Mr. Markus has over 25 years in the Cyber Security world. He has worked
with major defense contractors such as Raytheon and Aerojet Rocketdyne where he served as a
CISO. He carries a Top-Secret Clearance with Polygraph. Capture The Packet (CTP) was originally
created by Markus and colleagues in 2009 to be used as a competition at DEF CON; the world's largest
hacker convention. Since then, Aries Security has continued to enhance and update the system to
meet the ever changing need to stay current with the threat environment. Most recently, at the
request of DoD, the system was thoroughly evaluated at numerous DoD Cyber events and found to
exceed the expectations of users.
