Hey Everyone! Am Dec otherwise known as Rag! Been in the community for a few years now but only recently (past 2 months) got my break into the industry. I am a cybersecurity specialist in the Aviation Sector! I manage the CVD/VDP along with doing my own research for security issues across the aviation sector.

Also love OSINT and HUMINT and use that passion for good through a small gang in TMHC!

THANKS! ❤️

OH and I have a blog: https://ragsec.co.uk/blog

Hi, I'm James. I am fortunate to be the cyber security resource at a London Insurance Underwriter with a Manchester office. I had my first priv esc in 1989, first security job in 2000 and have been lucky enough to be progressing in security since 2007. I hate marketing propaganda. I love inventing new better ways of doing simple security well.

The site is just off the shelf stuff with minor tinkering.  I like PHP though, I think it's pretty easy to pick up.  It has a bad security reputation but you can harden it - e.g. here AppArmor is running on the webserver, and the PHP config disables unused and risky functions.

Hi all, I'm Steve(aka) Duds.  I am currently a member of a Manchester Team in a Security Operations Centre. I started my career back in the early 80's around the time of the first Pc's IBM 286's in Liverpool. I know I'm old. 🙂  Worked most of  that period in the North West as a field engineer for a 3rd party maintenance company repairing or refurbishing very old hard drive read/write heads and then having to re-align them. 
I have always enjoyed my work and mostly cut my teeth administering AV environments, Symantec, Kaspersky,  and now Sophos for SME's. This was good a grounding for my current role in Security Ops in which I do all it takes to protect and defend.

Greetings all,

I'm Chrissi, more commonly known as Froot or Frootware. I'm currently a Junior Software Engineer at a Portuguese software house called Critical Software (who I really really love!! If you follow me on twitter you've probably seen me expressing how nice they be...), and I've involved myself with the community around infosec for the last year or so. I'm currently in the Manchester area but will soon be making a b i g move to Southampton due to work - any tips and tricks and information about the area would be very useful!

I'm interested in malware analysis and DFIR, as well as OSINT and social engineering. I keep planning and talking about an idea to do a "malware of the month" on my blog looking at (and breaking down) old malware samples, but that's waiting on me getting yet another laptop to build a separated malware lab. I'm working on a degree in Computer Science through the Open University as well.

I'm also a moderator in The Many Hats Club Discord server and I adventured around to a lot of conferences last year, and I'm lucky enough to be able to adventure to a new one this year (bring on DEF CON!).

I'm never particularly good at introducing myself so I hope this works 🤣

Greets, nice to meet you all!

I'm Jared (usually use some form of the name "gradius" online), and I do lots of corporate security and automation stuff with Riot Games. I do a lot of defensive security stuff and tie in as much automation as possible. I also like trying to be a mentor for people who are interested in getting involved in infosec/programming and try to put together helpful documentation and such for both my coworkers and people on the Internet.

Other than work stuff, I also play a lot of video games, I love programming and building things, and learning new things. Happy to nerd out about all of this any more either here or on Twitter!

Hi all

Joining in the fun but be forewarned, I am a security curmudgeon in good part as i've been around for so long... Currently UK based but in the process of GTFO even more so now BoJo placed himself in power

Those who've met me in person will know this :classic_wacko:

When not moaning and bitchin... I do DFIR, Security Architecture, and just general security advocacy trying to move security "left" as they say.

Hi everyone, 

I'm Anne, and have somehow been making a living in this industry for the last 11 years (I'm still waiting to be identified as a fraud any day now). I sit more in the people, policy, education and risk space of security and when I describe what I do, I generally say that I am a translator between the technical teams and business teams. I did my infosec initiation in the Information Security team of a large mutual financial organisation, and from there moved into a large multi-national as a senior consultant specialising in security policies and standards, risk management, training and awareness. Poached from there to a small consultancy and then asked back again by my previous employer. 

I'm relatively quiet security-wise publicly; I have twitter which mentions infosec in my bio but mostly I talk mental health, cats and swimming...aside from that I am co-author and contributing editor to a relatively respected industry publication, and I once gave a talk at BSides London on their first ever rookie track. I haven't been brave enough to stand up and talk again since...

Good to meet everyone here, and hope for many good chats!

Hola!

I used to be an active MRT on UNITE Forums (BleepingComputer, Malwarebytes, GeeksToGo, etc.) but I'm currently on hiatus due to lack of free time. I like anything and everything InfoSec, with a focus on Blue Team stuff: AV, EDR, VS, SIEM, PAM, DFIR, etc. but I'm eternally conflicted by the desir to move over to the Red Team.

On Twitter, I'm @SecurityAura, my DMs are always open if you want to chat or have a question (I'll try to assist you to the best of my abilities).

Hey all! Arslan here (AKA Arszilla [I know it ain't creative. I came up with the name when I was 6 or so]). Been interested in reverse engineering and exploiting since I got my first laptop back in 2010; where I was trying to understand how cheats for some of my games (like Combat Arms) worked back then, and it's what peaked my interest in the field. (I guess I have MPGH and UnknownCheats to thank to).

I am a mathematics undergraduate from Turkey, in Turkey. Been actively lurking in the field for 1-1.5 years now, actively started working on stuff around 6 months ago on my winter break. I am mostly interested in red if not purple teaming, malware analysis and OSINT (who doesn't want to be a professional stalker from their home, right?). I plan to go after OSCP if I ever find the money or the job to get me the money but for now I'll be focusing on educating myself.

Hi everyone.  I'm Alan, but you knew that cos it says so right there. <--

Like many UK geeks around my age I started messing with computers circa 1983 with the humble ZX Spectrum, and a couple of decades later I've clearly come a long way as I'm currently waiting for a shiny new ZX Spectrum Next to arrive.  I've spent the intervening years taking things to bits to see how they work and occasionally putting them back together again.

My early hac- uh, exploring of computers other than my own was on PR1ME minicomputers (if anyone remembers those?) at college / university in the late 80s / early 90s.  After uni I landed a job in Tech Support, thus being dragged kicking and screaming into the PC world, and I've spent a good chunk of my adult life in and around various support / Wintel Sysadmin type roles ever since.  I've also dabbled with webdev back when editor of choice was Notepad, done bits of coding,  and had brief stints in management a couple of times (with hilarious consequences).

I moved into security earlier this year and am now an SME for a largish telecoms / managed services / cloud provider company.  I've spent most of my time in this role so far attempting to get my skill set back up to something vaguely approaching current (if you need an Exchange 2003 server fixing, I'm your guy), attending cons and generally suffering very badly from Impostor Syndrome.  It's dark and there are wolves.

When I'm not pushing buttons I'm a moderator on a mountain biking website [uh, Alan, that's still pushing buttons...], nurturing an escape room obsession and playing (OK, buying) board games.

I'm also aspie, so if I write something that can be taken one of two ways and one of those ways upsets or offends you, I probably meant the other one.  Probably.  (-:

Cheers for reading,

Alan.

I'm RT (alias panzertime or ptime), based in Atlanta. I do CTI for a big retailer. I got into CTI sort of by accident—I originally intended to be a generic Java developer, but flamed out of university and got invited down here to do cyber plumbing for the SOC at my current employer. I did that for a while before deciding that I needed a real job description and settled on CTI. I got my CCITP (certified cyber intel tradecraft pro) last year and finally got a bachelor's degree (in compsci) this year.

I speak Russian, which I picked up doing Christian missionary work in the Urals and Bashkortostan. Hobbies include rewatching the same Star Trek episodes over and over, developing film, gun stuff, and tweeting inflammatory stuff.

I can be abrasive sometimes, but I really do like to pitch in and help people out.

Hi fam 

I’m Zoë and I work at a global consultancy, where I think my job is to create powerpoints? I got into security due to personal safety and a lack of understanding of people - but stayed because I loved it. I did a talk on it, if you want to hear at Aruba’s Atmosphere H.E.R. Tom wrote a bloody beautiful article on me where it’s linked: https://gestaltit.com/exclusive/tom/yellow-capes-and-safe-escapes-the-journey-of-zoe-rose/ (not crying, you’re crying)

My goal has always been to be the person I needed 10 years ago - which I hope I believe I have since fulfilled. I live and work in London, but travel quite a bit to share the CYBERZ. My crowning achievement is being the mum of hacker ferrets - 7, Bit, and Byte. I also practice Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, I’m a 1 stripe white belt (so don’t be too scared). 

My focus is a small topic.. Privacy and Security by Design - you know, nothing major or challenging...  and I’m a ginger, so extra exciting 👩🏻‍🦰 In all seriousness however, please do reach out if you want to chat, cyberz, health, ferrets, BJJ, etc. I’m here ❤️ Słucham

Oh awesome, hey Jordan! I’ve had the privilege to speak in Kuala Lumpur - three times I think? It’s absolutely gorgeous! 

Not sure if you’re near/if I’ll be returning any time soon, but I’ll have to ping if I am and we can have a random OS.G meet up. 🤓

Hey Everyone 🙂

 

I do lots of things. Currently a Sr. Security Analyst for a startup called Blumira (blumira.com) in Ann Arbor. We're crazily writing a SEIM from the ground up and I write a bunch of detections based on attack paths.  I'm also the CEO of Mental Health Hackers (mentalhealthhackers.org) working to break the stigma of mental health issues and help those in our community. Co-Author of the Defensive Security Handbook through O'Reilly and I co-host the Brakeing Down Security podcast (brakeingsecurity.com). Single mom of 3 boys living in the middle of nowhere Ohio. Love traveling and learning. @infosystir on twitter too

Hey Everyone.

Really excited to give this a go 😀 I used to be a technical lead on our application security team. But my role is changing in more hands on testing and breaking things. I've primarily been focused on web app security, but trying to expand my knowledge out. Also attempt to do my own personal research when I have some time. Oh and a member of the The Beer Farmers.

Been in IT/security since 2002. Few years tech support/desktop support, many years sysadmin. Been involved in security both on personal time as well as within day-job duties since then as well. I have deep interests in both red and blue sides (and even dfir). I love being hands-on-keyboard technical, but also don't mind discussing security at higher levels or managing projects. Full time, life-long learner. I tend to gravitate a bit to the things I haven't done yet (so lately it's cloud-based security) or want to get even better with (appsecdev). Do some video games, tabletop games, and D&D on the side. OSCP a few years ago; CISSP many years ago. I bounce around. 🙂

<--Find me on Twitter there. Find me on LinkedIn if you feel like giving that a go (it's not too hard).

Edited to add: Iowa, US.

Hello everyone

I am a security & threat intelligence analyst that dabbles in research for a managed service provider based in London/Cheltenham. My favourite work is researching APT groups 😀. I used to work in software development, but I've always been a terrible programmer and security's twinkly eye ended up capturing my heart. I have a massive passion for computer science & DFIR in general and often write stuff on my blog https://littlefield.co.

Glad to be here!
Ryan

Hello, bit late with the introductions but here we go.....

My name is James and I'm the Vulnerability manager for a large retailer in Manchester (who would have though).  I've been working in security for nearly 10 years now covering both technical and GRC sides and in the last few years I've been lucky enough to achieve the likes of CISSP and CISM, so now I'm going to try my hand properly at pen testing :) 

Been following the forum since it started and now going to try and take part a bit more in the discussions.  When I'm not working or doing security stuff I am mostly chasing after my 4 year old and watching Everton lose.

Hiya, I'm Stuart and I work for media (production/distribution) company as their security manager.  I fell into security around 12 years ago after leaving the RAF and there isn't a day go past since then where something happens that reminds me that I'm still learning on the job.
