Nick Smith Lead Penetration Tester London +44 (0)20 7865 2407

I am our lead penetration tester, covering a variety of sectors including banking, fintech, insurance, education and investment management. In addition to penetration testing, my remit includes managing the development and delivery of perimeter cyber security audits, as well as advising on remediation techniques and methodologies. This involves security testing on corporate websites, internal network infrastructure looking for insider threats, as well assessing the perimeter defences in place. Taking a practical and pragmatic approach, I can work with clients to identify security weaknesses and help mitigate the risks moving forward.

Prior to joining the firm, I worked in the industrial networking sector as a technical engineer, leading the way through cyber security for critical network infrastructure. I have significant experience in network design and intrusion detection/prevention systems, from small utilities-based companies to large scale motorway networks.

In my spare time I enjoy walking, hiking and playing guitar.
