Digital Interruption


Digital Interruption is a team of security researchers, developers and penetration testers specialising in mobile technology, founded by Jahmel Harris and Saskia Coplans in 2017.

We develop security software both commercially and to client specification and are three times Innovate UK grant winners for our research and development and our security innovation projects. We work with clients as broad ranging as NATO, FTSE 250, Crown Commercial Services G-Cloud 12 and SMEs.

Saskia sits on a number of cyber security advisory groups including the Greater Manchester Cyber Advisory Group and the OWASP Education Committee and runs both the local OWASP chapter and a group aimed at upskilling women and gender minorities in cyber called the Infosec Hoppers. She was featured as one of the Top 30 Female Cybersecurity Leaders by SC magazine in 2022.

Recognised for his expertise in cyber security and mobile technology, Jahmel’s research has been covered by international media and his workshops on mobile hacking are attended worldwide. Both founders can be seen speaking at international tech conferences such as 44Con and (ISC)² Security Congress.

The CVE ® Program (common vulnerabilities and exposures) catalogs and publicly discloses cybersecurity vulnerabilities to aid in better protection of software. As a team we contribute to this program through our research, now holding over 30 registered CVEs, we also hold several cyber security certifications.

We release open source tooling including our Innovate UK grant winning AI APT classifier, RAPTOR, Cookie Monster, which automates testing of cookie secrets, our Vulnerable-XXS-App and Protodump, a tool to extra protobuf .proto definitions from binaries. We also release technical blogs and research whitepapers.
