GJ Scobie

Author of The Kill Chain

GJ Scobie works in cyber security, is a Certified Information Systems Security Professional and is featured in the Global Top 100 Leaders in Information Security published by Corinium Global Intelligence. As a public speaker, he regularly presents on various aspects of computer security including sessions on Ransomware, Mobile Security and Cyber in the Movies. Last year he performed as part of the Cabaret of Dangerous Ideas at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe with a sell-out show, “My neighbour hacked my toothbrush” highlighting the dangers of internet connected devices in the home. In his writing, he deals with the dark side of technology and how it affects society reliant on computers. He self-published his debut science fiction thriller in 2022, The Copernicus Coercion, the first in a series featuring body hackers, the manipulation of computer networks via internet-connected implants and rogue Artificial Intelligence. His latest novel, The Kill Chain, a cybercrime thriller set in the present day, is due to be published by Darkstroke later in the year. He lives in Scotland and, when not writing, loves to explore his native country, taking more photographs than he can ever hope to catalogue.

The Kill Chain will be available later in 2022
