Craig McCart stands as a leading expert in cybersecurity , antivirus and VPN technology, boasting over a decade of rich, hands-on experience in the realm of corporate cybersecurity. His tenure at Comparitech has been marked by leveraging this deep reservoir of knowledge, ensuring that his insights in content creation are both insightful and practically grounded.

Immersed in the dynamic field of cybersecurity, Craig meticulously tracks and analyzes the latest developments, translating complex technical concepts into user-friendly VPN guides, comprehensive comparisons, and insightful reviews.

When he's taking a break from being a Comparitech word-wizard, he spends time playing games with his baby (his power-hungry gaming PC).

His typical go-to titles are God of War, New World, and the occasional Metal Gear Solid speedrun (the best game ever, in his opinion).

When he's not gaming, he's with his family (with actual non-gaming computer babies!), enjoying days out and the occasional trip abroad.
