Sanjay has been a Senior Security Consultant with NotSoSecure since June 2018 and his work mostly involves Penetration Testing of web applications, mobile applications (especially Android), and external infrastructures. His work also involves code review for some major clients. These are generally large organisations and eCommerce platforms, that are mostly based in Europe and the US. He also contributes to the researching and updating NotSoSecure Advanced Web Hacking training courses. Finally, his job involves undertaking various types of research, which is published on the NotSoSecure blog and NotSoSecure’s GitHub Repository
Sanjay has a Bachelor’s degree in Commerce and a Master’s degree in Computer Applications gained in 2012. Before joining NotSoSecure, he worked as a Security Engineer for the Bitcoin exchange and before then as a Security Analyst for Net-Square. Prior to this security role in NetSquare, he worked as a Software developer as well as a Senior Software developer as Team Leader
where he was skilled in various programming languages like (c#.net, python, ruby, c, c++, Java). He now has extensive penetration testing experience involving web applications, mobile applications, and external infrastructure assessment. He has participated and presented in a number of Null chapters and also participated in Bug Bounty programmes.
The aspects of Sanjay’s work that most appeals are the opportunities of constantly learning about new technologies and developments in Information Security and related issues, plus the challenge of needing to keep his skills and knowledge up-to-date. This absolutely needs to be done in a highly consistent and invariably daily manner. He also greatly enjoys the research part
of his work. Inevitably, this feeds into the ultimate objective of securing clients’ systems and digital data, which in turn means assessing and identifying the very many new threats, vulnerabilities and technologies that appear on an almost daily basis.
