Number4studio was my first start company that I built in 2015, and I couldn't ask for a better experience. I learn so much and made so many mistakes. We shut down in JUL. 2017 due to slow growth & founder burnout. Some of our products:

DEC.2014 – DEC.2015
I worked as a IT Security consultant in ABS, and had participated in implementing the Security Operation Center for the company. I lead a team of 4 people who work on this project. I also provided technical training to junior members of the team.
MAY. 2011 – NOV. 2016
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
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.
