Alex Chantavy

Alex Chantavy is a software engineer on Lyft's security team. As one of the main developers on Cartography, his biggest security interests are understanding permissions relationships in cloud systems and finding opportunities for lateral movement. 

Before Lyft, Chantavy was a senior penetration tester on Microsoft's Azure Red Team, and prior to that he spent five years at the Department of Defense doing development work on security tools. In short, he enjoys learning about easy ways to make computers do what they're not supposed to do, making robots do his homework and showing others how to do the same.
