My Recent Accomplishments:

I have expanded my knowledge of computer hacking and forensics broadly. I now possess four EC-Council certifications in addition to three other certifications from Paraben and Microsoft. As a result, I was able to protect my organization’s infrastructure more securely.

What would not have been possible without CEH?

In 2017 our company was targeted with a ransomware attack that was executed when a user clicked on the attachment. All our files were encrypted, and a ransom was demanded $150K, because of the knowledge possessed by my numerous EC-Council.

How did CEH contribute to your career?

It sparked my interest in entering the mind of a hacker thinking the way they think and hardening any infrastructure so these threats can be mitigated and/or prevented totally.

During the pandemic, did your role become more challenging? If so, how?​

In 2017 our company was targeted with a ransomware attack that was executed when a user clicked on the attachment. All our files were encrypted, and a ransom was demanded $150K. Because of the knowledge possessed from my numerous EC-Council programs, I was able to help my organization from such attacks in the future.
