Martin joined the UK team of NotSoSecure in 2021, where he works with a wide range of clients. He delivers security services such as Penetration Testing (web application, infrastructure, and networks) and Red Team assessments, appraising system and network vulnerabilities with little or no prior knowledge of the client environment. He also delivers training for clients on application and cloud security, DevSecOps, and infrastructure, as well as at major conferences, including Black Hat Europe and Black Hat Las Vegas. Finally, within NotSoSecure, he participates in research on new application security threats, with some of his findings published on the company’s blog.
Martin began working as a Software Developer in 2011, gaining a BSc (top of the class) in Computer Science in 2016. He then switched to cybersecurity, achieving an MSc in Computer Security in 2018. His work as a Security Consultant has led him to pass a number of professional certifications, including OSCP (Offensive Security Certified Professional), OSWE (Offensive Security Web Expert), and OSEP (Offensive Security Experienced Penetration Tester). He has also created course content on various topics, ranging from digital forensics to advanced application security focused on niche topics.
Martin has long been fascinated with the inner workings of hardware and software. His training in software development and cybersecurity has provided him with the solid background needed to understand how security vulnerabilities can be introduced at every stage of the development lifecycle. He is passionate about combining his knowledge of the two fields when he creates training content and delivers training courses, which allows for a greater depth of understanding. Moreover, as more code is written each year, he holds that security training content must always be tailored to the understanding of developers.
