Like many in security, Tarot (Taz) started off in the military working in various Intelligence roles covering from SIGINT / Electronic Warfare (EW) and HUMINT activities in an offensive role to running Counterintelligence (CI) tasks protecting national assets. As the threat of Internet-delivered attacks increased, this became a greater area of focus of his as he realized how dangerous these were, not just to Governments, but to everyone.

“We live in an age where pretty much everything people do is connected in one way or another, which opens the doors for malicious activity. When I left the Army, I formed my own company in 2010, successfully helping organizations defend against a variety of attacks and I’ve never looked back!”

He spent two years running the Cyber Security Incident Response Team (CSIRT) for a top 10 FTSE100, multinational dealing with everything from commodity malware to advanced threats. As a consultant, he built SOCs, IR, and threat hunting teams at a range of organizations from large financial services providers, retail organizations, manufacturing, and IT Services.
