My name is Heitor “D3LET” Gouvêa and I just create things I need to see exist in the world; I am currently working on projects that help people, organizations, and companies take control of their own information.
In the end of 2014, I started studying programming independently and by the end of 2015 I was already fascinated by the world of offensive information security.
In early 2016 I participated in a Hackathon and later I was hired to work in the Brazilian government in the area of Information Technology - I worked in several teams, such as: development, architecture, information security and assistance in the management of large projects. Some time after working as a Trainee, I worked as a Information Security Analyst for some Brazilian companies, and after this I decided to start a career as an Independent Researcher so that I could concentrate on things that really made sense to with my purpose.
During my work as a Independent Researcher, I worked alongside incredible companies like Shawee, Github, HackerOne and other not-so-famous but equally amazing companies. I am fascinated by the area of offensive security, so I spend many hours studying this segment. In the past I won some prizes, for example: first place in the CTF of Bsides São Paulo 16th, the qualification of Hackaflag in 2019 and first place in Hackathon of the City of Campinas in 2017.
I audited high-profile sites for security vulnerabilities and managed/worked on teams of software developers and computer scientists, providing high-security architectures. My work is focused on understanding threat models, analyzing existing applications, and building smart tools to combat the current and future security risk for individuals or groups.
