About Me

I am an experienced IT Security professional, with Master's in Cyber Security from Wright State University Ohio. I am self-motivated and dedicated security engineer with diversified domain experiences in the field of Information technology, Banking, Utilities, Airlines, and Retail sector. With my 6 years of professional experience, I got the opportunity to work with some of the fortune 500 companies like Citi, Southwest Airlines, NiSource, DSW and Accenture. I have worked on various security tools and technology for identifying security threats and vulnerabilities, and helped companies to evaluate and fix security threats, and other risks in their IT infrastructure. I have also contributed in automating various manual processes, thus increasing the overall team productivity. I do believe that hard work is the foundation to creating value and success, but I also believe that it should be balanced with a passion for other parts of life including family and recreation. I enjoy playing Badminton and love watching movies and hanging out with friends.
