About Luke Jeffries

I was born in Chertsey, Surrey in 1980 but moved to the Isle of Wight with my mum, Dad and brother in 1989 where I live now.

After leaving school I studied IT and graphic design at the Isle of Wight college. Not knowing what I wanted to do with my life I decided to go travelling with my girlfriend at the time. Travelling was interesting experience and probably not one I would like to repeated in a hurry!

Once we got back I decided that I wanted to pursue a career in IT. Over the next 3 years I worked as an IT Technician for middle and primary schools gaining valuable experience of Education IT Systems. At this point in my life I decided I needed a new challenge and opened my own company called Lightning One Ltd. The aim was to provide IT support for businesses and be my own boss.

During the early stages of the company setup, I met David Watson who ran a busy Computer Forensic company called Forensic Computing Ltd. At first I was employed to setup the computer systems and network with my good friend Josh Dinsdale. After the setup was complete, David asked me if I would like to stay on and work with as a Computer Forensic Technician. I found the job to be extremely rewarding and enjoyable. New problems and puzzles that needed solving were encounter daily. FCL funded Computer Forensic training including a Masters Degree in Information Security and computer crime. Unfortunately after 2 years a major contract had finish and it was time for me to leave. Lightning One was also dissolved at this time.

I now work as an IT Consultant for a company called Dataswift who support local government and businesses on the Isle of Wight. My work colleagues are some of the best It professionals I have ever worked.
