About Me

hs

I belong to Indore(M.P.) and done my masters in computer application from SGSIPS, Indore. I currently work as a Principal Threat Researcher in Sophos, Bangalore, India. this city(Bangalore) has become my home now (here since last 11+ years).

Previously I worked with McAfee for 10 years(Bangalore), Symantec for 3.5 years(Pune) and ClearTrail Technologies(Indore) for 2 years.

I have overall 16+ years of experience with Security research, started my career as a QA engineer though.

I believe in constant learning and while not working, I spend my time with two kids.
