Doing incident response,Vulnerability analysis,Penetration Testing,  digital forensics is the thrilling job and like it the most. The job is challenging as it requires to be on the top by being updated on all the vulnerabilities, trends and advancements. Identifying risk and enforcing mitigation controls is also very interesting to deal with.

Insider threat is a high risk for critical infrastructure. The consequences of any malicious insider incident can cause significant losses and impact on reputation and goodwill with financial penalties. It should be known that alone technology controls are not enough and companies should be aware that their employees can be the greatest vulnerability and the ultimate solution should be combination of technical and non-technical factors considering employee at the centre.
