I am a performance-oriented and motivated Cyber Security Professional, knowledgeable in Zero Trust. I have experience configuring system security policies, procedures, and security controls and maintaining network infrastructure to protect and mitigate against vulnerability risks.
Throughout my time in the tech industry, I have focused on security engineering, emphasizing threat detection, vulnerability management, and zero-trust implementation. I’m expanding my skills to include cloud security and Splunk in my arsenal.
In my free time, I study to stay updated on the latest Cyber trends by writing blog reports on the newest threat actors, CVEs, and vulnerabilities and how to protect against their potential impact. I love interacting with other security professionals within the various communities I am a part of on social media platforms.
