Head of Research & Development,
Nick's main focus at AppCheck is innovation in the automated detection of vulnerabilities, particularly in increasingly complex and oft-targeted web applications, where contemporary scanning software often falls very short in comparison to the manual analysis of an experienced penetration tester. Needless to say, the goal of Nick and his team's work is to lead in the narrowing of this gap in order to better meet the security concerns of organisations. Nick has a background in Computer Science research and previously lectured in Operating Systems, Computer Networking, and Distributed Systems at the University of Birmingham School of Computer Science. He enjoys teaching, coding and talking about vulnerabilities and ideas with anyone who has the time... so come for a chat.
