Benedict Collins

Staff Writer (Security)

Benedict has been writing about security issues for close to 5 years, at first covering geopolitics and international relations while at the University of Buckingham. During this time he studied BA Politics with Journalism, for which he received a second-class honours (upper division). Benedict then continued his studies at a postgraduate level and achieved a distinction in MA Security, Intelligence and Diplomacy. Benedict transitioned his security interests towards cybersecurity upon joining TechRadar Pro as a Staff Writer, focussing on state-sponsored threat actors, malware, social engineering, and national security. Benedict is also an expert on B2B security products, including firewalls, antivirus, endpoint security, and password management.

Before joining TechRadar Pro, Benedict worked as a Production Manager for NIHL ice hockey team Milton Keynes Lightning where he was responsible for livestreaming home games to fans across the UK. At the same time, he was also working as a Social Media Creative Videographer for a local digital marketing agency, where he was responsible for videography, photography and graphic design for a wide range of clients.

Outside of work, Benedict is a rookie calisthenics enthusiast, and also enjoys running and reading (though not at the same time). As a Cotswold native he also enjoys exploring the local countryside and woodlands.
