  • Researching and advising on security best practices for emerging technologies

  • Working with teams on innovative solutions that challenge the status quo

  • When presented a problem-statement you’re able to think through the applicable layers (OSI Model), evaluate the risks involved, and advocate for the appropriate security controls at each layer
