All signs on the Earth and in the Sky show that I am in the IT industry since 1997. It is easy to deduct that I simply can't resist playing with modern high-tech toys. :-) Wide area of interests and rich business experience (development, design and maintenance of software, dealing with various IT systems, team and project management) give me a confidence and good perspective being continuously on the edge of modern technology (yes, this is exactly where I would like to be). Recently I am predominantly focused on IT security which IMHO is one of the most exciting and promising areas of contemporary IT business.
I am working as certified IT security consultant in the Pentesting Department of the leading information security company in the UK: 7Safe Ltd. I am familiar with various business applications, technologies and corporate infrastructure in many enterprises across the UK (banks, e-commerce, production, public sector, etc.). My areas of particular interest include database security and applications security (web applications and windows apps), but I am also opened for every new experience and learning a lot. I am also responsible for preparing training courses (i.e.: Certified Application Security Tester - CAST or Secure Coding for Web Developers) and creating a variety of hacking challenges. Don't be surprised if you will find several things I did in materials of conferences such as Black Hat or EuSecWest. :-)
IT Security Lab is the web page where I would like to share and exchange some knowledge with people in the industry. Learning new things is an essence of continuous development, so I hope the information found here may be useful for you.
You may be sure, IT is not the only thing I am interested in. E.g. in spare time (unfortunately not so often recently) I am doing photography and digital painting. Some examples can be found here.
Feel free to contact me directly anytime if you have any questions, doubts, wishes or crazy ideas. I am opened for potential cooperation (assuming you have some interesting project), so would always be pleased to hear from you. :-)
With kind regards,
