Hi, I’m Manny.
I am a Cyber Security Analyst with a keen interest in Ethical Hacking, Low Level Attacks, Malware Analysis And Reverse Engineering.
After completing my BCS accredited Computer Science degree at Keele University with a 1st Class (Hons). I had then went on to complete my GCHQ accredited Masters in Information Security at Royal Holloway University of London with a Distinction.
My Msc project was titled: Investigating what is the most effective way of applying IoT security testing frameworks to medical devices.
Certifications and Training
Over the past year I have been studying and preparing for the OSCP exam by Offensive Security. To help me prepare for the exam and in my spare time to develop my technical skills I am an avid user of TryHackMe and HackTheBox. I also love CTF's and learning about Bug Bounties. To supplement my learning I am also a student of TCM Academy where I have taken a number of ethical hacking courses such as the PEH and the movement, pivoting and persistence course.

Projects and Research
I love to research in the field of Active Directory security and Malware Analysis. Some projects I have done recently are setting up my own pentesting lab with Microsoft Azure and practicing Active Directory attacks, analysing and locally deploying Phish Kits. I have also set up my own isolated Malware Analysis lab to develop skills in this area.
