Initially a DJ, Dan retrained into cyber before the government thought it was a good idea!
Dan has worked as a Software Engineer for 9 years and has had a keen interest in all things cyber security ever since dealing with an incident early on in his career, which taught him a hard lesson about secure coding! For the past 4 years Dan has worked at Mimecast, helping to build their secure infrastructure, but also as a Security Champion, giving advice to colleagues.
In his spare time he now likes running and enjoys a sea swim now, after starting a year ago because there was nothing else to do in lockdown. He hated both hobbies to start with, but now enjoys them. Dan also enjoys learning about cryptography, malware and using OSINT For Good.
