A cut wire, photographed and edited by Fredrik Walløe

I grew increasingly interested in information security in the years after Stuxnet and as an MA student at Goldsmiths University I wrote my dissertation on the Snooper's Charter.

By 2015 this interest had become sufficiently intense to justify a bachelor degree in Information Security at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology in Gjøvik (formerly Høyskolen i Gjøvik). Wrote a dissertation about Key Reinstallation Attacks against WPA2 for mnemonic, where we sought to automate the attack using proof-of-concept scripts developed by Mathy Vanhoef.

I worked part-time as a Security Analyst at mnemonic in Oslo for 2.5 years before transitioning to a more specialized role as Security Intelligence Analyst at IBM; where I hunt threats, respond to incidents and attempt to automate processes.

Over time I plan to write more alongside this job – likely a combination of data-driven journalism, technical writing about projects and short stories.
