Speaker bio

I started my journey as a Network Engineer and worked for some time and then came
into systems. I was previously with the private Telecom and now with
Bhutan Telecom. During that process i received fellowship to Apricot
2015 and the i went as a trainer to Network and systems security to
APRICOT 2016. Going as an attendee and then going as a trainer to the
same event has been an exciting one and hope that encourages the other
participants.I also actively participate in BTNOGs held in the country
as and when possible. I have also signed .bt after joining the company
and then implemented dnssec. I have been in this industry for 7 years now.
