About us

Who We Are

We are third year computer science students studying Cyber Security and Digital Forensics at Technology University Dublin in Blanchardstown formally known as Institute of Technology Blanchardstown. Throughout this year we studied the potential dangers the online world poses to anyone who uses it knowingly or otherwise. This blog is the practical product of an in depth research thesis written as part of our third year project. We hope that parents and children find this information useful and helpful in relation to increasing online security.

Our group consisted of James Finglas, Cathal Murphy and Seán Guthrie.

James Finglas

Currently in my third year of a Bachelors with honours degree, i have covered a wide array of subjects, including basic website design and implementation, back end server logic and implementation. Basic to advanced programming in the following languages: C, C++, Java, Javascript, Python, PHP, Twig, HTML, Mysql database scripting. Video game game design was also covered in C#. The first two years covered basic and advanced Cisco networking practices and protocols including practical configuration of networks and routers. In my third year in switched to cyber security and digital forensics from general computing. This allowed me to specialize in Penetration Testing, Digital Forensics and secure programming as well cryptography and network security.

I have produced several practical applications of the subjects i have studied including websites, video games, large scale programs and research projects and my sincerest hopes is to enter into the InfoSec world having earned my degree to have a meaningful impact in the world i have grown to love over these past few years in University.
