Cyber

Cybersecurity Professional in the making !

Heyo!!

 
home-hey-aa

I’m André, an extroverted, open-minded (but with strong opinions), curious and creative mind who likes to explore the whys about almost every subject. Being a learning lover, you can be sure that I Google a lot whether for studies, new books to buy or to play a new song I just heard on Spotify 🙂

With 10 years of working experience, was only recently that I found the cybersecurity world a fascinating never-ending learning field which led me to try some CTF’s using Kali Linux, Burp Suite, Nmap, Metasploit, among others.

And, most recently it made me develop a hunger for knowledge in pentesting matters following companies like OWASP, NIST, Rapid7,…

Not only because of the fun to explore new things every single day but also because of the shortage of skilled professionals in the area! That’s why I decided to put my values at work to become an asset in protecting online users from immoral online behaviour.

Oh right, now I also write stuff eheh
