Hello! I'm Brandon :)
I'm a dedicated Cybersecurity Incident Response Analyst with a proven track record of ensuring robust digital security within the dynamic landscape of the transportation sector. With a keen eye for detail and a passion for safeguarding digital assets, I am committed to responding effectively to potential cyber threats, mitigating risks, and ensuring the resilience of critical systems.
In addition to my professional endeavors, I am an avid enthusiast of development work, constantly seeking to enhance my skills and stay abreast of the latest advancements in the cybersecurity domain. My proficiency extends beyond the realm of cybersecurity, as I also find joy in the art of photography, capturing moments that resonate with my experiences. Furthermore, my commitment extends to transit advocacy, where I actively engage in promoting sustainable and efficient transportation solutions, recognizing the pivotal role they play in shaping our communities.
I have been working on projects to track the reliability of public transportation in the Chicago region with my CTA Reliability & Metra Reliability trackers. These tools use publicly available resources to determine the number of trains that were dispatched compared to the number of scheduled departures over the course of every day. Recently this endeavor expanded to also cover WMATA in Washington, DC via the WMATA Reliability tracker.
My multifaceted interests not only reflect my professional versatility but also underscore my dedication to continuous learning and contributing meaningfully to both the technological and societal aspects of the world around me. With a unique blend of technical expertise and creative pursuits, I am poised to navigate the evolving landscape of cybersecurity while fostering innovation and positive change in the broader community.
