    I'm a Penetration Tester and Cyber Security Specialist who is a professional in evaluating the security posture of Web-Applications (Websites) and ensuring the security of personal clients' online identities, accounts, devices, and networks, I've possessed my current knowledge through 3+ years of self-study and research plus 2+ years of work in the industry, protecting clients on a personal level and running vulnerability assessments against business websites, always leaving positive impression and impact, I hold a great record of being able to expertly provide the following services: - Perform comprehensive security checkups on Emails and Phone numbers and pinpoint security holes which often lead victims to be hacked with zero interaction nor awareness from them. - Assist in Account Recovery (Ex. Instagram, Facebook) - Educate thoroughly on the findings and remediations for a vulnerable target, equipping clients with enough information to trust themselves as they continue to utilize the technologies as normal with no fear of being targetted by hackers. - Investigate and educate on online frauds/scams, especially crypto ones, why and how they work, and how to distinguish between legit and not legit easily. - Clean up networks and devices from viruses/malware and ensure optimal patching for security. - Report fraud websites that impersonate legit businesses for a takedown. IMPORTANT: When it comes to cybersecurity-related services, there is a number of scammers not to be underestimated, whether within or outside of Upwork, therefore stay vigilant and keep in mind the following, 1. If you were scammed online via crypto, there's no one out there with the right to give a guarantee that they will be able to recover it for you despite how well furnished the so-called hacker's portfolio appears to be, the chance remains very slim and you should only pursue this kind of service for the sake of leaving no stone unturned knowing the high probability of failure, and you should only select a freelancer with a reputable profile and reviews to back up their activity because scammer accounts are usually fresh with no reviews and no verified ID, feel free to consult me to evaluate that. 2. Same applies to the request of hacking an account, there are complicated caveats that explain why it DOES NOT work the way you think it does but to keep it short, if you want someone's account hacked, aside from it being illegal and unethical and isn't the type of "service" I provide, the chance for it to work is about 1% to begin with, again, I'm available for consultation, account recovery is a different subject with a higher probability for success as long as it's your own account that was lost/hacked.

    Please don't contact me regarding hacked accounts. There is nothing I can do and it's illegal to try and hack them back. Sorry! For over 10 years my greatest passion has been cyber security. For the first 6 years I worked for NCC Group, the largest cyber security consultancy in the world and gained a wide range of skills and experience working for high street banks, global corporations and UK government ministries. I've now moved on and have started my own business, my greatest passion is helping small and medium sized businesses fix their security problems. I eat, drink and sleep cyber security. I have experience testing a wide range of technologies, including but not limited to web applications, internal networks, external networks, mobile applications, network devices and Wi-Fi. Having a broad range of experience allows me to rapidly place in context of the asset I'm testing within the clients environment. My focus is on helping web and mobile developers, network administrators and business owners ensure their products adhere, not just to best practice but to the highest security standards. By using a combination of manual and automated testing I am able to produce results in a timely and cost effective manner. I assist with remediation by providing advice on which areas of vulnerability to focus on first and how best to implement fixes. I have a track record of understanding highly technical security issues and being able to convey them to both a technical and management audience. I'm always happy to discuss client requirements and work with them to identify the best methods to achieve their objectives. As part of the process, I offer a pre and post engagement call to ensure we are a perfect match and that I have achieved your goals.

    Unconventional Solutions, Uncommon Results. A study from the National Cybersecurity Alliance shows that 20% of businesses with less than 100 employees will experience a cyber attack each year and that 60% of those businesses fail within 6 months of the attack. Preparation is key, identify your critical assets, secure those assets, monitor/alert/and respond to incidents when they occur, including having a response plan. Chances are if it hasn't happened to you, it will or it already has happened and you just don't know. My goal is to bring the experience and skills acquired over 23 years working for large organizations to the entrepreneur community in an attempt to reduce the statistics above at a price point that is approachable to those impacted businesses. Common Services: Malicious Email/File/URL analysis - Did you get a phishing email with a link or attachment and not sure if it is legitimate, then this service is what you want. Surprisingly, this is my most often requested service. This service includes analyzing files(exe, office files, zip files, or pdf), email, or URLs to determine if it is malicious and what happens if the file is run or the url is visited. The service includes executing the file/url in a sandbox, review OSINT on the file using tools like virustotal, as well as use reversing techniques on the file. Email headers will be reviewed to determine origin and intent. If you clicked the link or opened the attachment, then you might need the next level of service, Incident Response. Website Malicious Content Removal - Once an attacker finds a vulnerability and exploits that to gain access to your website they sometimes deface your website, sometimes gain access to the data, put malicious code in your pages to impact your users, but always give themselves a way back in. Our job is to not only find and remove the malicious content but determine how it got there and how to prevent it from reoccurring. Security Consulting - Make sure you have the proper controls in place, including logging, to reduce the risk but also make sure you can detect and recover from an incident in a timely manner. Get some peace of mind on questions like are my backups safe in the event of a ransomware attack. Has my system already been breached? How would I know if my system is breached? A vulnerability assessment is a rather quick process to identify known security issues like missing patches or common misconfigurations. These are identified through an automated scan, but the most notable point of a vulnerability assessment is that the vulnerabilities are not verified, it is assumed that if the system is missing the patch, it is at risk. This type of test is usually quicker and cheaper and gets 75% of the “low hanging fruit”. A penetration test takes this a bit further beyond just identification but actually tries to exploit the vulnerability to validate risk. A penetration test also goes a bit further as it might also test weaknesses in good configurations, processes, and implementations, items that can not be scanned automatically. A pentest usually also contains a vulnerability scan as part of the process, usually takes longer, and costs a bit more. Application Testing/Fuzzing and 0 day exploit development - The purpose of testing an application using techniques like fuzzing, is to ensure that the application can handle different types and lengths of unexpected input without crashing as well as testing to see if application handles the exceptions properly. If the fuzzing process has identified a crash based on unexpected input, it might be possible to develop an exploit that allows an attacker access to the system or perform some other nefarious activity. An exploit that has not been disclosed publicly but is actively being exploited in the world is known as a 0 day exploit. Having this type of test performed on your applications before release, can go a long way to reducing the risk of an attacker finding it and using it to attack your clients. Web application testing is the process of not just testing the application itself against vulnerabilities like cross site scripting, cross site request forgery, or sql injection among others, but the entire web application infrastructure including the framework used like Rails or Spring MVC, the server OS (Linux/Windows), the web server software (IIS, Apache, Web Logic), the language used (PHP, ASP.Net), any middle tier applications, and the databases on the back end. A vulnerability scan is generally also part of this type of test.

How to Hire Top Penetration Testers

What is a penetration tester?

Penetration testing is the practice of performing a software attack on a computer system or network for the purpose of discovering weaknesses, exploits, and vulnerabilities. A penetration tester will help keep your security one step ahead of those looking for an easy way into your network.

How do you hire a penetration tester?

You can source penetration tester talent on Upwork by following these three steps:

  • Write a project description. You’ll want to determine your scope of work and the skills and requirements you are looking for in a penetration tester.
  • Post it on Upwork. Once you’ve written a project description, post it to Upwork. Simply follow the prompts to help you input the information you collected to scope out your project.
  • Shortlist and interview penetration testers. Once the proposals start coming in, create a shortlist of the professionals you want to interview. 

Of these three steps, your project description is where you will determine your scope of work and the specific type of penetration tester you need to complete your project. 

How much does it cost to hire a penetration tester?

Rates can vary due to many factors, including expertise and experience, location, and market conditions.

  • An experienced penetration tester may command higher fees but also work faster, have more-specialized areas of expertise, and deliver higher-quality work.
  • A contractor who is still in the process of building a client base may price their penetration tester services more competitively. 

Which one is right for you will depend on the specifics of your project. 

How do you write a penetration tester job post?

Your job post is your chance to describe your project scope, budget, and talent needs. Although you don’t need a full job description as you would when hiring an employee, aim to provide enough detail for a contractor to know if they’re the right fit for the project.

Job post title

Create a simple title that describes exactly what you’re looking for. The idea is to target the keywords that your ideal candidate is likely to type into a job search bar to find your project. Here are some sample penetration tester job post titles:

  • Need hackers to test our network security system
  • Penetration testers needed to help us find system vulnerabilities
  • Remote penetration testers wanted to recommend backdoor to new software

Project description

An effective penetration tester job post should include: 

  • Scope of work: From designing tests to conducting physical assessment of equipment, list all the deliverables you’ll need. 
  • Project length: Your job post should indicate whether this is a smaller or larger project. 
  • Background: If you prefer experience with certain industries, software, or environments, mention this here. 
  • Budget: Set a budget and note your preference for hourly rates vs. fixed-price contracts.

Penetration tester job responsibilities

Here are some examples of penetration tester job responsibilities:

  • Develop tests designed to break into security-protected applications and networks
  • Conduct physical assessments of entire network servers and systems 
  • Document key findings, write reports and deliver findings to executive team

Penetration testers job requirements and qualifications

Be sure to include any requirements and qualifications you’re looking for in a penetration tester. Here are some examples:

  • Masters degree in computer science or similar field required 
  • Minimum four years experience in security vulnerability testing
  • Extensive knowledge of two or more programming languages
