  • Cloud Assessment Automation Tool

    I was the technical lead for a project that was assessing the cloud security posture of a leading financial organization based in AWS. Using multiple tools and scripting mechanisms, my team and I generated both broad and tactical-level reporting on areas where the company was doing well and where remediation was required. This increased the overall security of the organization, reduced cloud spend, improved processes, and provided strategic information to C-level executives.
    This project is under NDA, so no further information can be provided at this time.
