I'm an IT Security professional based in Scotland. I've been in IT Security for over x years now, with the last x-5 focusing on penetration testing/ethical hacking.

Currently a managing consultant with a large provider of security testing services.

Any opinions expressed here are purely my own and not necessarily those of my employer.
