Simon L. J. Robin

Hello, dear reader! My name is Simon L. J. Robin.

I'm just another Information Security enthusiast. I live to learn and understand what's going on under the hood in the digital world around me.

I work as a Security Consultant at IOActive, mostly to break things and helping people fixing them.

I was born in Bordeaux, France on November 9, 1992. I have studied at the French Engineering school ESIEA and at Royal Holloway, University of London.

Find me elsewhere on the web:
