Senior security specialist for Dubai smart Government
Started my career as a developer of web applications, later I was given an opportunity to purse my dream in information security. So I moved to information security in Ernst and Young. I started as a part of ITRA doing penetration testing for external clients including major banks, insurance and telecom companies across middle east and Africa, Later I moved into global information security team and there I mostly handled critical internal applications and periodic security assessments of all internet facing applications.
I love this profession very much as it gives challenges and opportunities to learn something new on a daily basis. Apart from that I love robotics and hardware hacking and currently I am building a 3d printer, a cnc machine and a robotic pet. Whenever possible I find time to attend hacker conferences and among one such occasion I met with Dr. Philip Polstra, professor and renowned speaker at DEFCON 2014 USA. Phil mentioned my name in his book “Hacking and Penetration Testing with Low Power Devices” (ISBN-13: 978-0128007518, ISBN-10: 0128007516), highlighting the work that I have done.
