Biography

While I was studying Information Systems and Technologies, my career started by discovering a critical vulnerability on the electronic student system of the university. After I reported that vulnerability to the administration of the university, I was awarded with achievement grant and recruited as an Ethical Hacker. I graduated from Yeditepe University, Information Systems and Technologies in 2006 and Yeditepe University, Master of Business Administration (MBA) program in 2010.

Nowadays working as a Vice President of Akbank Cyber Defense Center (CDC), responsible for the management of CDC which incorporates Vulnerability Management, Threat Detection, Response & Intel and Security Engineering teams. (25+ HCs) I currently hold the CISSP, SSCP, OPST, OSCP, CREA and CEREA security certifications. For more info about my professional background, you may visit my LinkedIn profile.

In my spare time I conduct security researches to raise the awareness of the community.
