High Quality Delivery
Since becoming a full time penetration tester, Jamie has conducted assessments of network infrastructure and Windows and UNIX servers, Citrix-based applications for leading UK and international companies. He has also undertaken code review of critical applications in a variety of languages, performed compiled application (thick client) testing, and has led a successful mitigation of a denial-of-service attack against a major UK retailer.
These have been successfully delivered, often to very exacting timescales. Thanks to a strong background in system administration and development, Jamie has worked directly with development and infrastructure teams to demonstrate the exact problem, outline a solution in the appropriate language or environment and then re-test once fixes have been committed.
