Daniel Ayers

Senior IT Security Consultant, Digital Forensic Examiner, IT Architect and Developer with more than 20 years experience on high profile projects

I hold Honours (1992) and Masters (1995) degrees in Computer Science from the University of Canterbury in New Zealand.

For the first part of my professional career I was a software developer specialising in telecommunications - including writing C & MC68k assembler code to implement IP, security and management features in a wide area network router.

From 1995 my focus moved to Internet security. I attended a meeting in 1995 at my employer discussing whether or not we should have a firewall on our permanent Internet link (!). A few years later I worked as a consultant to the Police investigating Internet crime and giving evidence in court.

Over the past fifteen years I have worked both in IT security and computer forensics. I have written computer forensic software that has been used internationally.

For the past ten years I have been self employed.

I like to work on a range of projects - big and small and of a variety of types - this is one of the attractions of freelancing.
