A little bit about myself: My real name is Ahmed Elmayyah(AKA Satharus in some places), I graduated from the Faculty of Computer and Information Sciences, Computer Systems Department, Ain Shams University in July 2021. I’m a cybersecurity enthusiast and researcher, tinkerer, and a strong supporter of free/libre software and decentralisation. I currently work as a Hardware and Firmware Threat Research Analyst at HP. Sometimes I do purple-teaming too. I am also a GCFA and an eCRE.
I was born in Cairo, Egypt and grew up in the town of Cumbernauld in Scotland. My family moved back to Cairo -where I lived for 13 years- when I was around 10. Now, I live in Bristol, England. What a weird journey, huh?
My hobbies have mostly been tech-related, such as electronics, cybersecurity, custom PC building and hardware, videogames(add me on Steam), and programming. I also enjoy cycling, swimming, writing, research, and progressive rock music.
“Satharus” was the name of my character in a couple of RPG games during high school and it just kinda stuck with me.
