Vincenzo “Vinny” Troia breaks into businesses for a living — and he loves his job. While that may be alarming to hear, Troia’s work as a Certified Ethical Hacker with Night Lion Security is always authorized and performed in a controlled manor.
Night Lion Security knows that the recent high profile customer data breaches at Fortune 500 corporations are only the tip of the iceberg. The fact of the matter is, the world’s criminal organizations are hiring cyber criminals to assist them with their primary goal: defrauding businesses. As an Information Risk Management company, Night Lion Security provides businesses with the means to protect against, respond to, recover from, and most importantly prevent all types of cyber threats.
Night Lion Security’s founder and Principal Vinny Troia has 15 years of IT security and software development experience, the past 7 of which have been spent working on Federal and Department of Defense projects. During which time he’s received a Masters degree in Information Assurance and Security from Western Governor’s University , as well as become both a Certified Ethical Hacker and a Certified Computer Hacking Forensic Investigator. Troia is an expert in website and network security and digital forensics investigations, and is currently pursuing a PhD in Information Security from Capella University.
Curvve Recordings is an independent record label based in St. Louis, MO that specializes in electronic dance music. Founded by DJ / Producer Vinny Troia in 2003, Curvve has released 60 remixes, originals, and compilations since the label’s founding, including several that have topped the Billboard and Beatport Top 10 Dance charts.
Then based in New York City, Curvve released its first single, a compilation of remixes of the #1 Billboard dance smash “Free” by Ultra Nate. With remixes by Oscar G, Junior Sanchez, Corbett & Troia, and Brick City, the album took the dance music industry by storm and put Curvve Recordings on the map.
In 2004, Vinny Troia released his first original track through Curvve with a single called “Expression.” The track was received well by critics, with M8 Magazine saying “Vinny Troia puts his money where his mouth his by releasing ‘Expression’ on his own label and basically kicking ass with it in the process.” Thanks in part to a remix by techno giant Abe Duque and praise from Pete Tong, “Expression” gained huge popularity on Radio One and entered the Top 10 on Beaport.
