Glyn is a Principal Consultant in Corsaire’s Professional Services Team. He has worked in IT Security and Internet related roles since graduating in 1996, and has specialised in security design, deployment and analysis since 1997. He holds numerous accreditations including CISA, CISM and various vendor certifications. Glyn has an honours degree in Mathematics and Computer Science from Imperial College, London.

Glyn has ten years of success in planning, designing and implementing information security and risk from both an internal and external perspective. Choosing to specialise in security assessments, he has gained in-depth experience of infrastructure testing (external penetration and internal security assessment testing); application testing; wireless/RAS and telephony testing.

His career has focused on Ethical Hacking, Security Assessment and Audit since 2000, at Corsaire and previously Internet Security Systems (ISS) where he was co-founder of their EMEA X-Force Security Assessment Services team and lead author on the ISS Ethical Hacking Training course. His networking and Internet security background provides invaluable experience on network level attacks, and provides an innovate perspective on application testing. He has actively contributed to Open Web Application Security Project [OWASP] since its inception, particularly on the testing methodologies and guide projects.

Glyn’s past roles have included that of Senior Network Security Analyst at a leading City of London Financial institution where he was involved in the corporate security at many levels. He was responsible for consulting on the paper security policies and procedures, designing, budgeting, procuring, deploying and supporting the Security infrastructure of the organisation and its business partners and building a permanent team to continue the ongoing security strategy and its support, together with vulnerability analysis and penetration testing of the internal systems.

As an Internet and Security Consultant at a Global Internet Service provider he provided design and deployment advice and implementation on Security Technologies (Firewalls and other border control devices, encryption, content management, anti-virus, DR, strong authentication etc.), ISP scale network and routing design and security, and Internet related services (mail, DNS, web, e-commerce, UNIX performance tuning). In this pioneering era of Firewalls and perimeter security, honed penetration testing skills were essential to demonstrate the value of the emerging technologies, and validate their effectiveness.

Glyn joined Corsaire in July 2002 as a Principal Consultant. He is currently heading up Corsaire’s Australian division.
