Hi, I’m Stephen Rees-Carter.

Welcome to my little corner of the internet!

I’m a Security Consultant who specialises in security audits and pentesting for Laravel and PHP sites. I’ve been building and hacking Laravel apps since 2013, so I know how to help you secure your sites. Find more here, or send me an email and we can chat about what you need.

In addition to security audits, I also run security workshops and training for development teams. These are focused on teaching developers to think like hackers, to help them write secure code and identify weaknesses hackers may exploit.

In my spare time, you’ll find me speaking at conferences about security (or hacking sites while speaking about security!) and writing my Laravel Security in Depth newsletter, which teaches Laravel developers of all skill levels about security concepts.

You can find me on Twitter, Mastodon, and GitHub, or send me an email, and if you wish to contact me securely, you can get my public key on Keybase.
