Daniel López

Security Engineer

About Me

Hello, my name is Daniel López, and I am a Security Engineer with over 6 years of experience working in Security Operations Centers (SOC). Throughout these years, I have been involved in the analysis, containment and remediation of threats for multiple international clients across diverse sectors.

Also, in my spare time, I enjoy coding, building projects, and researching threats (which I often share on my Twitter account @0xDanielLopez). I have a particular fondness for programming in Python & Bash and exploring technologies such as AWS or playing with APIs.

These diverse interests enable me to stay up-to-date with the latest advancements in the field and to be continually learning.
