Hi there! 👋 I’m Kev Quirk, a cyber security nerd, web design enthusiast and privacy advocate from the UK.
👨💻 My Work
I have worked in the cyber security industry for well over a decade now. Currently I am the digital forensics and incident response lead across Europe for Bank of America. I’ve been at the Bank since 2017 and it’s the most interesting job I’ve ever had.
Prior to working in cyber, I was in the British Army for 5 years. I got to travel all over the world and served in both Afghanistan and Iraq.
📰 My Newsletter
I have a monthly newsletter that I send. It tends to cover some stuff that’s been on my mind, some info about posts both from this blog and elsewhere, and some insider stuff that I don’t publish anywhere else.
You can read more about my newsletter here, or you can subscribe using the form below.
⚠️ Warning: Reading my newsletter will not make you successful, respected or rich and is likely to significantly reduce your intelligence. May contain nuts. 🥜
📖 My Guestbook
With this site having a 90s feel, I felt that comments wouldn’t cut it. So I decided to go with an old school guestbook instead.
If you want to give me some feedback on a post 🤬, or just say hi 👋, you can sign my guestbook here.
