I was thinking of posting on Altosome but realised that the blog post got a bit personal and thought it might be better to post it here instead.
Looking back at what I have done since last July (July 2017) till now…
Firstly, I started reading up on cryptocurrencies and the craze around it. I went for the NUS Summer School programme on Cryptocurrency and got an in-depth understanding about it from Assistant Prof Prateek Saxena.
Then I went on to explore the wonders of Machine Learning. That include both statistical classifiers and neural networks. Not to forget the unsupervised classifiers too!
On the academic research side, I started my own research in the field of Intrusion Detection using Machine Learning techniques. Yeah, it is a marriage of Intrusion Detection and Machine Learning. Perhaps it is more of an arranged marriage between 2 popular fields in tech space rather than a love marriage. Haha.
Other than being a postgrad student in Information Security, I have made a step forward in the career as an Information Security Professional and joined Uber Security team. Although it was short-lived, it is still a significant step forward and I have learn so much within a span of 3 months.
So what is my next adventure? I’m joining another organisation (no prizes for guessing it right) and doing something under the Security organisation.
I wanted to blog at Altosome but realised that I forgot my password. Oh well. I guess I have to wait for my host to help me to reset the password before I can blog there.
I got a job now… at Grab. Well, as part of the acquisition, we are given an opportunity to join Grab which I am glad since that means I will have a job that is inline with my interests.
So I’m basically going from #UberSecurity to #GrabSecurity. It’s been a sweet and short 3 months at #UberSecurity as I embark my journey in #GrabSecurity. Hopefully it will be longer than 3 months this time round. Let’s hope no other companies are interested to buy Grab so soon…
