Bio

Hello all!
My name is Ruchira (pronounced: ROOH-CHEE-RAA). I'm a graduate student at The University of North Carolina at Charlotte (UNCC), currently pursuing my Master's degree in Cybersecurity. I'd be graduating in December 2019. My other educational qualifications include another Master's degree in Computer Science and a Bachelor's degree in Computer Science as well. I am an active member and the social media manager of the 49th Security Division Ethical Hacking Club at UNCC. I have recently completed my summer internship at Zscaler, San Jose, CA as a security intern and got a lot of exposure to the fundamentals of Cloud Infrastructure and Security along with major security features such as SSL inspection, Data Loss Prevention, Signature Pattern Matching for Advanced Threat Protection and much more. Prior to this, I have worked as a Software Engineer with expertise in SQL programming in a company called Yardi Software, India. I am really passionate about a career in the domain of Network and Information Security. 

I'd soon be taking my CompTIA Security+ and CompTIA Network+ Certifications. In my free time, I like to listen to some calming music and read security blogs.
