Ben Ashby
Junior Cyber Security Consultant
Ben is a Junior Cyber Security Consultant that works across our consultancy projects, often working closely with the first responders in a cyber incident response to oversee the deployment of our team and the logistical planning of the engagement. As a technical specialist Ben is often involved in supporting our work in investigations and rolling out strategy roadmaps as part of some of our virtual CISO engagements - including cloud platform security auditing, firewall configuration testing, AWS security hardening and phishing simulation infrastructure and training.
Ben is also the lead on many of our in house R&D projects, ranging from deploying and testing intrusion detection systems to researching and configuration of log aggregation/SIEM solutions.
Studying Computer Science at university, Ben took a keen interest in a wide range of topics including discrete mathematics, operating systems, cryptography and secure computing. His final year dissertation focused on research into a subset of network flow algorithms called maximum flow algorithms and the real-world applications they have.
Outside of work Ben enjoys web development, rugby and programming (C, Python and Haskell mostly).
