Achievements

Incident Response Engineer at Flo Health UK

I’ve recently started a new position at Flo Health where I am responsible for Incident Response Managment and some Threat Hunting as well. Good luck to me! Also, I’ve recently won a Google Cloud CTF (Threat Hunting) and got myself a cool backpack 😊

Penetration tester at SolidLab Ltd

In May, 2019 I’ve taken a new career path to widen my knowledge and experience in information security as a penetration tester at SolidLab. Since than I’ve learned a lot, acquired lots of new skills but still that’s definitely not even close to being called a true InfoSec specialist. One working in this field should always be learning, every day.
