I am a security professional and I am passionate about spreading awareness on security issues related to OT (operational technology), ICS (industrial control systems), and IoT (internet of things). Along with my expertise in these areas, I also believe in giving back to the community by actively participating in outreach programs and speaking at various events and venues. Through my speaking engagements, I hope to educate people on the importance of security in these critical areas and empower them to take steps to protect themselves and their organizations.
In addition to my work in spreading awareness on security issues, I also mentor individuals in career changes, career goal setting, and breaking career gaps.

I believe in empowering and supporting individuals who are passionate about this field, and I am dedicated to helping them succeed in their career journeys.
