About

Hi there, welcome! 👋🏽

xroot.org is the personal homepage of Tiago Faria (that’s me).

I started the website back in 2006 to run a Wordpress blog and in its 15 years of existence I’ve changed content and purpose so many times it’s hard to keep track. With no more presence in social networks, this will be the place I get to call online home.

I have around 1000 hobbies even though I only get to put in practice a handful of them. I’m passionate about motorcycle racing and - even though I don’t do it as much as I would like - I’ll try to spend as much time as I possibly can on track. Here’s a picture of me in the legendary Estoril (former Formula 1 and MotoGP) track:

When I’m not racing, watching movies or series, obsessing over my book collection or playing Gears of War, I’ll be having fun with my family and - trying to - stop my 2 kids from fighting.

Professionally I’ve been working in information security (I don’t use the c word) throughout the majority of my career. I’ve worked in several bank, pharmaceutical and governmental institutions, including a very insightful position with USAFE (United States Air Force in Europe) working alongside some cool people at the 65th Communication Squadron.

Even though it existed as a R&D project for much longer, in 2019 I founded 3CORESec, a company that specializes in the creation of tools and platforms for threat hunting and detection engineering as well as original research. I’ve written about 3CORESec in its own separate page.
