Passion for Security

Edwin’s passion for security developed while working in his previous role at a financial institution. His main focus was on Active Directory design/security engineering and OS Client/Server system hardening. In 2015, his focus shifted towards cloud security. As companies started developing plans for hybrid cloud adoption, he saw an immediate and fundamental need to understand secure cloud adoption methodologies. Edwin also enjoys working with offensive security toolsets to understand the full attack cycle on weaknesses and misconfigurations in different systems.
