Paul Asadoorian

Paul Asadoorian produces several shows on information security, including the award-winning “Paul’s Security Weekly”. He’s taken an interest in computer security since age 8, where he hacked on his Apple IIe. Paul works in the information technology field as a “Product Evangelist” and performs penetration testing for various organizations.

Whether there is a fishing pole or a glass of scotch in his hand, likely there is a cigar hanging from his mouth. Introduced to cigars by his father, he has since developed a passion for cigars. Smoke just about anything once, buy a box if you like it.
