Jonathan is the inventor of Matrix Pattern Authentication, which in its latest incarnation (pin+TM) makes it possible for anyone needing to log in to everything from a PC to a phone (or even a door lock), with a one-time code, instead of vulnerable/insecure passwords, PINs and combinations.
UK-based PinPlus Limited, of which he is chairman, has developed pin+ into a complete ready-to-use solution, with the potential to replace all fixed user-IDs. The company is working on a solution for securing data on mobile phones and as a way to log into Office 365 itself, convinced that fixed PINs leave users, especially in crowded locations, too vulnerable to techniques such as shoulder-surfing of login codes.
Before becoming interested in the information security industry, Jonathan worked a journalist, broadcaster and PR/marketing consultant. He has written for many of the UK’s national papers, as well as high circulation magazines like Auto Express and Woman’s Own. He remains dedicated to seeking out better (and more secure) ways to work on the go!
