INFORMATICS SERVICES CORPORATION

(ISC)

SENIOR IT SECURITY CONSULTING ENGINEER

I have worked at ISC for 5 years. I started my job as an intern for 3 months. I also could obtain admission for graduate level [Master's Degree]. My good work in the company convinced them to give me this opportunity to work and to study together, so after that three-months internship, they hired me. Considering both my intelligence and capability of working hard, I believed that I could handle this situation, and I really did it.

At first, my task in this company was about penetration testing, and I chose similar courses at my graduate institution to what I was doing at that company to become a master. My second seminar course at the 4th semester was about detecting 0-day malware by detecting anomaly in network packets which I used in the company SOC (security operation center) where I was working at to detect new malwares, and as a result, I was awarded a certificate of appreciation by CEO of the company. This work gave me many opportunities to improve my skills in the field of IT security. Moreover, I got a lot of more certificates in this field from some important companies, three of which are SANS, Core Impact and NIST.
