Cloud Security Specialist

Nokia. We create technology that helps the world act together. As a trusted partner for critical networks, we are committed to innovation and technology leadership across mobile, fixed and cloud networks. We create value with intellectual property and long-term research, led by the award-winning Nokia Bell Labs. Adhering to the highest standards of integrity and security, we help build the capabilities needed for a more productive, sustainable and inclusive world.

I design the end to end security of one of the world's largest private clouds, including securing the infrastructure, platform, and software all as service.

Evolution in technology has rendered imagination into reality. However, it brings a lot of security risk along with it. I get to tackle these risks head-on and secure the organizations, products, and ultimately each individual. As they say, it takes one tiny hole to bring down an incredible ship. I get to find these holes in the field, design, and fix them to secure all of us. This is what I love about my work!

Typically, my day involves research & innovation, discussions, deep dives, and hands-on experience. I research security best practices, deep dive studies to understand them, and hands-on practice to implement them. Discussion with the product owners and architects to understand the product roadmap so I can design the security features and functionalities to be included in them. Discussion with the developers to plan and implement the security roadmap. Discussion with the test team to fix the security loop holes. Discussion with the operations team to ensure the security in runtime is as expected, and to ensure any deviations are recognized and addressed in the right manner. I also set aside dedicated time to dive deep into gray areas and work towards innovations, in terms of research papers, project implementations, and intellectual property submissions.


While we accelerate the technological advancements on an exponential gradient, I aim to build a safe and secure environment. I achieve this from the technology perspective via enhanced security solutions for all digital products, and educating the wider user community, on security best practices and innovations. I also promote veganism and the ethical treatment of animals.

I spend some of my free time volunteering with non-governmental organizations focused on animal welfare and education for underprivileged.
