ABOUT ME

I am a cybersecurity specialist with over a decade of experience in the field. I hold a Ph.D. in cybersecurity from the University of Oslo, where I have authored and co-authored numerous scientific research papers published in journals and conferences.

My expertise encompasses a broad spectrum of cybersecurity and IT domains, making me a T-shaped professional with versatile skills.

In my current role as Senior Security Operations Manager at the Norwegian Agency for Local Governments (Kommunalbanken/KBN), I am responsible for overseeing and managing the organization's security operations. This entails developing and implementing robust security strategies and utilizing cutting-edge security solutions to protect critical assets and data for local governments.

Before joining KBN, I served as a vital member of the Sykehuspartner CERT team, responsible for securing ICT services for hospitals across the Nordics. In this capacity, I leveraged state-of-the-art security solutions, including IDS and EDR, to conduct technical and tactical analyses of security incidents affecting healthcare providers in the region. My contributions were pivotal in safeguarding sensitive information within the healthcare sector.

Before my tenure at Sykehuspartner, I made significant contributions as a Security Researcher at the University of Oslo. I actively participated in cutting-edge research projects in the cybersecurity field, further enhancing my knowledge and skills.

Additionally, I have a proven track record as a CTO/IT Manager for a prominent hotel group. I successfully managed IT operations and ensured the security of guest data and systems. My journey in the field of IT began with roles as a Web and Software Developer at DataProgNet, where I honed my technical skills and laid the foundation for my career in cybersecurity.

My commitment to cybersecurity, along with my diverse experiences, enables me to approach security challenges with a holistic perspective, ensuring the protection and resilience of organizations and their critical assets.
