I grew increasingly interested in information security in the years after Stuxnet and as an MA student at Goldsmiths University I wrote my dissertation on the Snooper's Charter.
By 2015 this interest had become sufficiently intense to justify a bachelor degree in Information Security at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology in Gjøvik (formerly Høyskolen i Gjøvik). Wrote a dissertation about Key Reinstallation Attacks against WPA2 for mnemonic, where we sought to automate the attack using proof-of-concept scripts developed by Mathy Vanhoef.
I worked part-time as a Security Analyst at mnemonic in Oslo for 2.5 years before transitioning to a more specialized role as Security Intelligence Analyst at IBM; in the IBM Nordic SOC I did threat hunting, incident response and was passionate about driving automation and improving processes, before later gaining leadership experience by leading of the Nordic SOC for 2 months. After this brief stint as acting SOC manager, I returned to more familiar tasks at TietoEVRY, where I continued to drive automation and improve routines. I now lead the Engineering side of the SOC.
