I possess both expertise and passion in the field of Offensive and Defensive Security. I serve as an advisory board member for the EC-Council’s Licensed Penetration Tester group and HackersEra. I actively participate in numerous bug bounty and Capture the Flag programs worldwide, and have been invited to present my research at several prestigious international security conferences, including BlackHat, RSAC USA, ICS Singapore, Hack In Paris, HITB (Amsterdam, Dubai, Abu Dhabi), SecurityFest (Sweden), InfoSecurity (London), Offzone (Moscow), NanoSec (Malaysia), DSCI, National Cyber Security Conference, Best of the world Conference & Hakon. My previous roles include Head of Cyber Threat Intelligence at Hive Pro, Senior Security Researcher at Darkmatter, and leading a global team of security intelligence at Symantec. These experiences have provided me with valuable insights and fueled my desire to continue growing as a creative leader in the field of cyber-security.
