Jamie Woodruff is Europe’s No. 1 "ethical hacker".

What it means is that he gets paid by major companies and banks to do penetration tests of their systems in order to find the holes for potential hackers and advise them on ways to patch them.

Woodruff, 24, is not your typical hacker. He was diagnosed with autism, dyslexia and dyspraxia as a child.

At the age of nine, he started to hack computer networks.

In his teens, Woodruff won a ‘hackathon’ competition and studied a degree in the School of Computer Science at Bangor University in North Wales, UK, but dropped out to pursue a career in public speaking.

He started teaching ethical hacking while still a student and became a sought-after computer security expert. 

Today, Woodruff is a Certified Penetration Testing Engineer. The London-based computer geek specialises in "social engineering". He travels all over the world as a resource speaker and talks about the importance of cyber security.   

As B3coin ambassador, Woodruff talks to Gulf News about the benefits of investing in cryptocurrencies such as B3coin, Hedge Connect, Bitcoin Diamond and other "alt coins". Woodruff as an investor said: “Hedge Connect is a revolutionary decentralised lending platform that is currently in the stages of an Initial Coin Offering (ICO) defiantly one to watch out for. It has an insane white paper and the staff are very transparent.”

He also give tips on where best to invest your money on, what is the minimum investment in cryptocurrencies and how safe it is to invest there and when to expect to get the return of investment.
