Securing Thoughts

Security Consultant @ Payatu

Hola! 👋

Ashwin is a meticulous newbie in the world of cyber-security, crashing in with a brain focusing on capturing the flags. The young enthusiast believes in gaining knowledge by sharing it, simplicity being the key to interact with like-minded individuals.

He contributes to communitites such as null and Developer Circle: Pune. He has been leading/managing null Study Groups for six different domains and have been working with Payatu as an intern for cyber security. He holds industry certifications such as CEH Practicals and MTA: Security Fundamentals.

He often writes about his experience on his blog and his social footprints can be tracked on twitter mostly.

He is surely the social being you will find at a snooker table dominated by a geeky conversation!
