About Me

I am a cybersecurity practitioner and leader, currently holding certifications such as CASP+, Pentest+, CPTE, CSWAE, CPEH, and ISO/IEC 27001 LA. My expertise lies in various areas including Linux security, penetration testing, secure software development, malware removal, and computer forensics.

I have had the privilege of serving as the Program Manager of AlmaLinux OS, which is an open-source Linux operating system driven by the community.

In addition to my work in cybersecurity, I have also contributed to the IT and cybersecurity magazines. Recently, I held the position of editor-in-chief at Cloud7 and T3, while prior to that, I served as the managing editor of BYTE. My experience in the field extends further as I worked as a software editor at PC World.

Since 1996, I have been actively involved in covering the technology industry. Over the years, I have written articles for esteemed publications such as PC Net, IT Pro, Computer World, PC Life, CyberMag, h4cktimes, and CIO magazines. Furthermore, I have authored books like Pardus 2011, Ubuntu, Windows 8, and Siber Istihbarat (Cyber Intelligence).
