What malware do you hate the most Any malware that gets into the backup which repeats the annoying cycle! I’ve seen so many small businesses suffer this way.

When did you realise that you were into computer security? It was my first month working for the police in the Digital Forensics Unit. I found I was given so many cool tools that could break security features and it was ethical – and I was getting paid for it!

Favourite activity: Water sports photography. The combination of nature, thrill seeking and technology all in one couldn’t be more perfect.
