Hi! I’m Ryan. I am a freelance security tester with experience in web application security testing, security consulting, security research, penetration testing, software development and training. Software security is something that I’ve always been interested in and I take pleasure in helping my clients build more robust and secure applications. I have over five years experience working for a leading UK security consultancy company as well as completing a BSc Hons in Ethical Hacking for Computer Security with a First class honours. In 2013 I was lucky enough to have won the Rising Star Award by SC Magazine UK.

When I’m not helping my clients build more secure software, either through training, testing or development, I enjoy managing and contributing to various Open Source software projects. Some of my projects include Damn Vulnerable Web App (DVWA), WPScan and others. I have also been known to report vulnerabilities to companies such as PayPal, Evernote, WordPress, Barracuda Networks, Mozilla and Apple Inc, which I find through independent research.
