Ali has over 7 years’ experience in secure web application development using C#, Java, JSP, PHP and Python. This gives him a unique understanding of the security of web applications and the different ways of exploitation. Having previously been a guest lecturer at Sheffield Hallam University and Warwick University, delivering technical cyber security modules, and receiving excellent feedback from every module taught.
He is familiar with the coding errors that programmers make which leave applications vulnerable, and thus knows exactly how to find and exploit them. In his free time, by using the mindset of a programmer and skills of an ethical hacker he finds different ways of circumventing application security. Ali is also an ISO 27001 lead auditor.
