Ben Goldsworthy

Cyber Security Practitioner

I graduated from Lancaster University—one of only a handful Academic Centres of Excellence in Cyber Security Research in the UK—with an MSc in Cyber Security in 2018. Since then I have redeveloped my employer's suite of GCHQ-certified training modules and am currently writing regular articles covering recent threats and cyber security advice for their blog.

I also do articles, projects and reviews on my personal Web site, attend cyber security events and competitions with the Lancaster University Ethical Hacking Club (LUHack) and am a contributor to the Technology, Terrorism, and Armed Conflict in the 21st Century project. I am also active in technology activism as a member of the Free Software Foundation, Open Rights Group and Code for Lancaster.

I'm also an ordained minister of the Universal Life Church, just in case.
