I’ve always been a tad obsessive when it comes to cyber security, coding & tech in general. Late one evening back in 2014, after a little too much coffee, my obsession got the better of me and I started coding a simulated phishing platform – Phishd. After 4 years of plenty more coffee Phishd was acquired by F-Secure as part of their £103m acquisition of MWR Infosecurity, Phishd & Countercept.
Later in 2018 I founded CultureAI to take the lessons learnt from simulated phishing and build a data-driven security culture management system to help organisations measure and improve
workforces security decisions beyond just phishing.
Prior to Phishd & CultureAI I worked as a senior penetration tester for NCC Group & MWR, providing cyber security testing, assurance & guidance to a significant number of the FTSE 100, across a vast array of disciplines – from Web/Inf testing through to mobile device testing, social engineering and red teaming. I’ve held a range of certifications, from OSCP through to CHECK Team Leader in both apps and infrastructure, and my keen interest in all things security & tech continues to this day.
