Instagram Takeover | Rutu Ataliya with AWS Security

July 20

AWS is back and ready to take over the WiCyS Instagram Story again! This time, they’re featuring Rutu Ataliya – a seasoned Cybersecurity expert specializing in Incident Response, Digital Forensic and Malware Analysis.

She has been working as a Security Engineer for AWS Security for over 2.5 years. Rutu started her exceptional cyber journey in 2015 with her first Masters in Computer Science majoring in Security. During that time, she developed a Cryptographic Algorithm for providing Integrity, Confidentiality, and Authentication for Medical data Security. This research was published in IEEE and she was awarded a Gold medal for her work and contribution. Continuing her cybersecurity journey, she received a full scholarship to join the University of Maryland College Park for her second Masters in Cybersecurity in 2018.

While pursuing a master’s, she also interned with Cisco and was part of their Next Generation Firewall Security team. Since graduating in 2020, she’s been working for AWS Security. In her current role, she leverages her expertise in Digital Forensics, Malware Analysis, Threat Intelligence, and Intrusion Detection to protect AWS and Amazon’s corporate infrastructure. Rutu has been a proud contributor at WiCyS since 2018 and has been actively representing AWS WiCyS at various AWS WiCyS Career Fairs, WiCyS JAM Events, and Mentor & Mentee Sessions. Rutu believes in giving back to the Cyber Security community and strives to uplift and guide women starting their journeys in Cybersecurity.
