It used to be a moment when “rocking the boat” while travelling was a monthly routine and when sticking to the basic methodology that “sharing is caring” and that “if it’s going to be massive it better be good” was the everyday mentality for a new generation of baby boomers who would eventually end up inspiring the next generation Y which is by the way a secret that you should be extremely careful about not to insult.
Back in the day when I originally began my story in the world of information security where I later on turned into security consultant working for a Netherlands-based company called Frame4 Security Systems where I eventually relocated with my girlfriend to study and live is today’s modern story of one of the most often cited security experts OSINT analysts security bloggers and threat intelligence analysts globally where I spend four productive years while working for ZDNet’s Zero Day blog including Webroot Inc where I was a security blogger for two years where I won a Jesse H. Neal Award including a SCMagazine “Who to Follow on Twitter” using my old Twitter account where I got approximately 11,000 followers following a massive outbreak of “hi” and “keep up the good work” following my OSINT analysis where I’ve exposed one of the primary botnet masters behind the Koobface botnet which at the time led to a variety of interviews including a mention in the NYTimes including a mention in DW I never really thought that I’ll actually end up in a Top Secret GCHQ program to monitor hackers online using my old Twitter account including the fact that I’ll also end up getting featured in Wikileaks where I found a message directed to me by a U.S company which was interested in hiring me at the time to work on a threat intelligence project.
