Expert Digital Forensics and Investigations at DXC TechnologyCertified GIAC GCIH and EC-Council CHFI

I am currently part of the Digital Forensics and Investigations team at DXC Technology. My main responsibility is investigating security incidents that impact DXC's clients. In my line of work I handle all sorts of security incidents, such as hacking attempts, virus infections and outbreaks, intrusions, data exfiltrations. I am deeply involved in Security Information and Event Management (SIEM), as well as network-related security incidents, and perform malware analysis, traffic/log analysis, in-depth forensic investigations and research into new threats.Working with vast variety of clients and different environments, is quite interesting and does require a lot of training and research.

My IT security carrier started back in 2008I started my work in IT security back in December 2008 with Hewlett-Packard enterprise as part of the Endpoint Security and Protection team. As part of this team, I’ve been interfacing with technical and management teams. My main responsibilities were developing and implementing endpoint security solutions in different environments. Additionally performing events monitoring and ongoing maintenance. My responsibilities included communicating with AntiVirus and Firewall vendors, submitting malware samples and creating custom installation packages for deployment on end user and server systems. That gave me a broad view of the IT security landscape and got me started on a journey that now continues for more than a decade.
