Expert Splunk Cybersecurity Consultant

Specializes in Information Security
For nearly 20 years, I have provided consultation services to improve efficiency and effectiveness through the implementation and optimization of infrastructure and distributed application systems. I worked at Splunk for 5+ years where I became a certified administrator, architect, and consultant. I worked with dozens of companies of all sizes, implemented ES (Enterprise Security) and bolstered the capabilities of SOCs and security teams. I also had the opportunity to teach a class of new consultants through their own certification. I frequently provided training to customers and mentored new consultants on the product and how to deliver excellent outcomes. I am certified with AWS architecture, CISSP (Security), and I earned various Splunk certifications when I worked at Splunk. I perform threat hunting using Splunk, Carbon Black, and other security tools for teams that don't have resources for their own threat hunting experts. I maintain and support a Splunk Cloud environment which is used by a SOC with a multi-tenant architecture. I've also set up some no-code automation tools to automate various incident detection and response workflows. This has improved the SOC response time and simultaneously reduced human effort. I have consulted many SOC teams on security orchestration, architecture, threat detection, and incident response (SOAR) using Splunk Enterprise, Enterprise Security, and Phantom. Lately I've built a few one-off dashboards and performed admin tasks for smaller clients without dedicated Splunk engineers. My extensive background in software and IT inform my security consultation skills. I earned my CISSP certification in 2019. I am well-versed in networking: DNS, SPF, DKIM, TLS/SSL certificates, and TCP/IP routing. I am experienced with SQL database migrations, running WordPress in production, and server backup/restore/migrations. I strive to use automation, best-practices, and agile principles to deliver solutions for business problems. I believe the best solutions are delivered through collaboration and by maintaining strategic and tactical perspectives of the problem itself. I am constantly learning new technology and the latest best-practices in order to deliver the best solutions to my clients’ needs.
