About.

PETER BASSILL.

Today I live and work in Spain and Gibraltar conducting security research and helping organisations of all shapes and sizes find a better cyber security balance. During my non working hours you will find me providing weather routing and safety checks on yachts of all types undergoing a passage of some description.

I love sailing, diving, motorsports and generally messing about on boats with my kids and my wife.

I am also a little bit of an ocean warden. I hate seeing the waste of humanity thoughtlessly dumped into the oceans.

About my Cyber Security work

About.

CYBER SECURITY.

My background includes a substantial history of first-hand responsibilities for information systems operations, network engineering, and information security management. During my career, I have achieved numerous technical and engineering qualifications and certifications, including Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP). I was a community leader in Payment Card Industries Data Security Standards and in 2009 was voted runner-up in the SC Magazine’s Information Security Person of the Year. Over the years I have developed discrete specialisms within the technology fields of “Cyber Security.” Since 2005 I have specialised from an Offensive Security view in Wireless networking and communication and from a DevOps and Offensive Security view in IoT technologies and builds.

Today I live and work in Spain and Gibraltar conducting security research and helping organisations of all shapes and sizes find a better cyber security balance.
