Research projects include areas such as Cloud Infrastructure Security, Windows Domains and Unix networking security, and he Is looking forward to beginning work on a new open-source pen-testing toolkit in the near future – watch this space!
Ant first discovered coding on a BBC Micro in the early 90s at around six years old, by 10 he was building custom PCs, and he has remained a dedicated “tech geek” ever since. He has been working specifically in Information Security since 2015 and holds a number of specialist certifications such as OSCP (Offensive Security Certified Professional), CRT (CREST Registered Penetration Tester) and ACSAA / ACDA (Amazon Certified Solutions Architect / Developer Associate), as well as a BSc (Bachelor of Science degree) with First-Class Honours in Mathematics and Computer Science.
Course content contributor and trainer for NotSoSecure’s Advanced Infrastructure, Hacking and Securing Cloud Infrastructure and Hacking 101 courses. Anthony has delivered training at Black Hat and other leading global Security conferences.
Having always felt compelled to take everything apart, understand how it operates, and (usually) put it back together so that it works again, Ant loves that Penetration Testing is a world where he gets to indulge this, while the thrill of finding and exploiting a vulnerability is hard to beat. Being extremely passionate about the subject of cyber security, having the opportunity to share that
passion and to help others understand technology from that alternative perspective on training courses is fantastic.
