I provide security services & security training to organisations of all sizes, my strong background in both development & System/Network Administration provides a great view on how best to both compromise and secure required services & applications.
The majority of my work involves working with companies to perform penetration & security testing, test and improve secure coding practices and provide security consultancy to companies that are keen to improve their processes & procedures.
I have great experience in developing & implementing efficient and effective practices across all sections of an organisation to assist with securing and retaining external quality recognition such as ISO27001, CyberEssentials and CSA STAR.
I help your company to understand their current security posture, their future goals and outlining how to achieve those goals. This includes working with companies on a long-term basis using coaching and mentoring techniques to help drive process improvement and provide external feedback.
We will demonstrate the ease with which a malicious user can escalate privileges and own an AWS account through very simple IAM misconfigurations.
This will include a live demonstration on our own vulnerable AWS account and show a number of tools and methods for testing, compromising and protecting your accounts.
