Cyber Intelligence Analyst, Egress
Ben has always been interested in computers, regularly getting into trouble at school and university for hacking/bypassing security systems. He stumbled into his cyber career when, while working as a prison officer, he uncovered security flaws in the prison’s computer system. He then moved to Cheltenham for more advanced cyber security opportunities where he joined tech startup Aquilai.
Working with Aquilai, Ben refined his malicious talents and began working on machine learning models to detect unusual behavior and signs of cyber-attack. Egress subsequently acquired Aquilai and Ben has risen to oversee efficacy for the product Egress Defend and now spends his time gathering intelligence on the dark web, researching, and creating new zero-day exploits, as well as frustrating cyber criminals by incorporating these new techniques into Egress suite of products.
