My name is Aaron and ever since I was an eleven year old boy I have dreamt of being what you would call a “hacker”, personally whilst this does ring true; I would much prefer the title of Security Researcher. Over the last couple years or so I have been re-discovering my passion for Information Security and feel that it is really what I want to do with my life. I have the dream of being one of the NCSC leads in 25-35 years and will work hard to make my dream come true.
I want to share important information and keep people updated about things that will affect them, and share my own viewpoints with those interested in what I have to say. If computers aren’t your thing, or you don’t want to learn about them; feel free to find a blog that you can relate to and enjoy to your hearts content.
If you know my type then you’ll know this blog isn’t going to be personal or include details about my life, its purely to inform others about cyber-security and the growing number of threats that everybody faces in our digital world. I will also be sharing my views on tools, education, current events and everything to do with cyber-security, and don’t worry if you’re scared by the idea, I will ensure to explain everything to the best extent I can, in a way everyone can understand. However for the geeks I will get technical when discussing somethings that are relevant, but will provide annotations where possible for others.
I hope that this blog is going to help people learn and become more aware of the challenges we all face, in a world of ever increasing reliance on our computer systems or the growing number of scams and con-artists aiming to take advantage of people at their most vulnerable, there are what you would know as (but I don’t really like this… generalization); white hat hackers, grey hat hackers and red hat hackers that are fighting back against the wrongdoers… And the best way we can all stay secure is through the education of others.
