Dwayne Melançon
Dwayne Melançon Vice President, Products Dwayne entered the tech industry as a support analyst, and he hasn't slowed down since. In addition to holding positions at Symantec and DirectWeb, he contributed to the Visible Ops Handbook and the Visible Ops Security Handbook, which required him to work with researchers from Carnegie Mellon, the University of Florida, the University of Oregon and the IT Process Institute. Dwayne holds CISA and ITIL certifications and is a member of the Information Systems Audit and Control Association (ISACA), the National Association of Corporate Directors (NACD), the Information Systems Security Association (ISSA) and IT Service Management Forum (itSMF). Dwayne believes that Tripwire and its employees have the opportunity to make a difference in the global level of cyber security. When he's not busy fighting cybercrime, he meets with as many customers as he can to foster a deep understanding of their problems and collaborate with them on practical, real-world solutions. Dwayne credits his considerable professional success to his genuine curiosity about the world and how it works. He revels in ambiguity and adapts quickly. The word "panic" is not in his vocabulary, and he is not afraid to roll up his sleeves and get dirty. Prior to his technology career, Dwayne spent six years working as a professional radio announcer in Louisiana, with two of those years spent in a plane reporting on traffic conditions. In his free time, Dwayne volunteers at a Boy Scout ranch in Oregon, where he participates once or twice a year in a "horse trek," which involves moving a herd of 70 horses nearly 200 miles through the Cascade Mountains. At one point in Dwayne's eclectic past, the likes of Rush Limbaugh and Herbie Hancock were calling him for Mac tech advice. If Dwayne could magically gain any ability, he would like to time travel - both backwards and forwards - to study the impact of small changes to the time continuum.
