I’m Stampy, a Security Architect based in Brighton, UK. I also tweet sometimes.
Small businesses don’t need a full-time security person on their team – there’s simply not enough risk to justify the high cost of hiring someone from this industry. Instead, I’m offering my time in small chunks to businesses in the UK South-East area, to fulfil the vital role of “Security” that most companies don’t know they need, until it’s too late.
When I work with a business, my role is varied. Here’s a short list of the work I carry out with clients:
+ Provide security awareness training and education to staff of all technical abilities
+ Work with senior management to understand the threat landscape
+ Conduct scenario-based risk/cost analysis and threat mitigation
+ Carry out checks on infrastructure and networks
+ Evaluate physical and virtual access used by clients and staff
+ Check policies and procedures
+ Review documentation for artefacts showing secure design
+ Build microservices to fulfil internal security functions
+ Investigate handling of, and access to, sensitive data
+ Design and implement authentication architecture, including 2FA, OAuth, FIDO integration
+ Audit system logs for unusual or suspicious activity
+ Implement IDS and IPS solutions to protect internal systems
+ Work closely with developers and engineers to ensure secure system implementation
One of my services is the design and construction of secure microservices and micro web-apps for internal and external use. I specialise in high-security low-footprint scalable microservices architectures.
I graduated from Huddersfield University with a BSc Hons in Secure and Forensic Computing, in 2009. Since then, I’ve worked in several security and software engineering roles, and am now moving into consultancy and freelance work. Check out my LinkedIn profile for more of my work background.
I built a site called DayLogr, it’s a simple journal/diary tool, used to track personal events.
I also wrote a Progressive Web App password generator called PwGen.
