Ethical Hacker and Digital Forensic Investigator

Mexico - Tests: 4

For the past seven years, I have been learning about the information security world, working as an CEH (Certified Ethical Hacker). With some of my co-workers, i have participated in a lot of projects, strictly focused on Information Security. Also, as we evolve and grow in this area, we have trained ourselves in Forensics Sciences, attending clients who need to know what happened after a contingency. I consider myself a self-taught person that likes to grow and that is not afraid of challenges or difficult cases. At this moment my priority is to teach and so much to share the little knowledge I have gained over the years, as well as learn from those who have traveled a different path and with this keep on growing.
