My friends tease me about my role in promoting First Base Technologies through public speaking, articles and interviews ... hence calling me 'Famous Pete Wood Security'
Sunday, 24 August 2008
Last week I spent a very enjoyable three days passing along some penetration testing skills to a room full of nice people. Amongst them was a gentleman named Dan from Texas. Dan was good company and a knowledgeable penetration tester - he also recommended xkcd to me and I strongly suggest it to you - it's inspired.
My friends take great pleasure in teasing me about my role in promoting our firm through public speaking, TV and radio interviews and so on ... hence calling me 'Famous Pete Wood Security'.
I speak at international IT security conferences and specialist groups, provide commentary on security issues for television and radio, and appeared in the BBC1 documentaries " ID Fraud: They Stole My Life" and "ID Fraud: Outnumbered" with my partner Didi Barnes.
As Chief Executive Officer at First Base Technologies, I specialise in penetration testing corporate networks and performing social engineering exercises. I also chair our IT security user group at white-hats.co.uk
