Jorge from Ecuador talks about his life at Edinburgh Napier University.
“I would like to create my own consultancy company offering services relating to information security”
The course has more than lived up to my expectations. The critical thinking is well oriented. It’s not just learning something that is written in a book, it’s about generating new concepts and criticism. My dissertation is focusing on digital forensics in a cloud environment. I hope that in Ecuador I am going to work in that specific area. There are other very interesting areas on the programme, for example penetration testing, digital forensics, host-based digital forensics and nowadays the cloud environment. I feel the cloud is going to be in constant development in the future so that is why I want to be involved with it.
My plan is to work back in Ecuador. So many students find opportunities to keep working here in the United Kingdom but I am happy to go back to Ecuador as I feel useful in that country. I would like to create my own consultancy company offering services relating to information security, principally digital forensics. I have a friend from the same town in Ecuador who was studying at Edinburgh Napier University at the same time so I think we will join together to create a company and offer consultancy services, teaching, presentations and seminars.
