Cybersecurity Savant | Helped the Government of India & Government of Thailand Secure Their Cyber Infrastructure | CISSP & CCSP Certified (781238) | IT & Security Strategy Specialist
I’ve transitioned across varied roles in the Information Security domain, beginning my career at the Audits & Assurance end of the spectrum; gradually transitioning into managing the enterprise wide implementation of a SIEM product and then moving onto the operational end of a Security Operations Center managing cybersecurity incidents and then building the cybersecurity capabilities of a Fintech startup.
My current role as a Territory Security Engineer has me helping businesses identify the right technology and products for their cybersecurity requirements and realize the full potential of their security investments, when I’m not at work I volunteer time at the BCI India Next Practice Think Tank which happens to the world’s fourth and India’s first Think Tank dedicated to Resilience and Business Continuity.
I have received appreciation from the Government of India and Government of Thailand for my help in identifying security vulnerabilities in their cyber infrastructure and have also been featured in the Continuity & Resilience Magazine as a “Next Generation Practitioner”
As a result of the diverse experience I have in both my professional and voluntary undertakings it has provided the ability to manage multidisciplinary projects and granted me the unique ability to speak both tech and exec.
I'd recommend you look at getting the deal with the Service Provider, as the possibility of having security misconfigurations on your own WordPress instance is far higher.
Going with a service provider restricts the amount of things one can configure (or misconfigure!)
