Hi! I’m Daniel, a recent graduate of Murdoch University with an interest in the fields of cyber security and software engineering. I am currently a junior cyber security consultant at Responsible Cyber, a company providing cyber security advisory services and working with companies from SMEs to MNCs, improving their cyber security posture one step at a time. And on other times, I enjoy a good run!
What do you do at Responsible Cyber?
As a junior cyber security consultant, I have had the opportunity to work with Responsible Cyber on many exciting cyber security related projects such as penetration testing and cloud security audits. I particularly enjoyed my experience with the cloud security assessment where we were involved in identifying security lapses within the client’s cloud-based environment.
The company’s current focus on developing the IMMUNE platform has led my tasks to be more engineering oriented. Allowing me to explore exciting web development frameworks as well as the use of AWS services in a real-world scenario.
Why Responsible Cyber?
I joined Responsible Cyber from the time where development of the IMMUNE platform was commencing. I felt that the idea of experiencing the initial stages from product conceptualisation to (soon) bringing it to market was not an everyday opportunity, and that sealed the decision for me and has been an insightful and challenging journey so far.
Another motivating factor for me is that I have admired the achievements of the founding members of Responsible Cyber, this has encouraged me to learn more from them to better myself not just professionally but also in the aspects of technology, cyber security, and business.
What Responsible Cyber is doing best
I have observed so far that client deliverables at Responsible Cyber has always been delivered with an attention to detail. Security reports provided for Responsible Cyber clients are concise, while at the same time present accurate and useful findings that help improve the security posture of the client. These reports are not just delivered for the sake of being delivered.
Personally, working at Responsible Cyber has also been a joy where colleagues care and learn from each other, making the workplace a more pleasant and enriching experience to be in and about. The company also strives to improve the capabilities of its employees, for which recently has allowed me to achieve the AWS Certified Solutions Architect.
What are your future motivations/aspirations
Working on making the platform production ready aside, I am really hoping that I would get the privilege of time and skills to work on a more exciting certification such as OSCP!
