About Me

I'm Liam Somerville a Scottish security professional. I thing I love the most about what I do is the wide variety of technologies I need to know about and use on a day to day basis as well as the pace in which the security industry has to work at to stay ahead. I've been working in security for 10+ years and have experience in:

IDS design, implementation and configuration
SIEM configuration,
Penetration testing,
Intrusion analysis,
Malware analysis
Vulnerability scanning
Digital forensics
Security Incident Handling and Management
DDoS Incident Management and mitigation

My Experience

I'm not a fan of certification as I've seen too many people able to pass an exam that just can't do the job - in particular, they cant think on their feet and need a documented process. I have some certifications including CISSP, CEH, CHFI to help keep the peace. I'm a big fan of SANS training as well as Offensive Security training having done the OSCP

Location
I'm based in the beautiful historic city of Edinburgh in Scotland. It's a wonderful place to live with beautiful scenery and amazing places like Loch Lomond just a short drive away.
