About me

About me

Hi there, and thank you for visiting my blog! Here’s a little about me.

In January 2017, I quit my job as a cyber security journalist to pursue a fantastic opportunity and study at the government-funded SANS Cyber Retraining Academy, where I earned my GIAC Security Essentials (GSEC) and GIAC Certified Incident Handler (GCIH) certifications.

Later that year I found work in the industry as a cyber security consultant. Although my primary focus is incident response, my work has also involved time as a security operations centre analyst, security log analysis, and building and tuning content for a security information and event management tool. Along the way I was also able to attend another SANS course and earn the title of GIAC Certified Forensic Examiner (GCFE).

Most of my blog posts are about cyber security, but also expect to read about some of my geeky tech side projects, my attempts to build something useful in Python, and reviews of interesting books and other useful resources I stumble across. I also write a monthly off-topic post, which can be about anything from Formula 1 and films to my travels and whichever video game I happen to be obsessed with that week.

Enjoy! And if you’d like to get in touch, feel free to send me an email.
