SOKRATIS ELISSEOU

Web Designer and Developer

Melbourne, Australia



An accomplished and talented professional with extensive working experience in the field of Web Design and Development (PHP-MySQL).

Experienced across several PHP frameworks, content management systems and ecommerce platforms.

Proficient in analysing system requirements, identifying potential problematic areas and/or system limitations as well as developing system solutions applying agile methodologies and security practises.

STRENGTHS

One of my greatest advantages as a Software Developer comes from my Computer Security background. Completing my Master's degree in Computer Security gave me a greater understanding of current system vulnerabilities and existing attacks. It also provided me with a great heads up on how to think when developing a secure system.

Additionally, I had the opportunities to examine the ways, techniques and source code used to maliciously gain access to unauthorized resources. Such opportunities gave me the experience and understanding on how and why intruders may be attracted to a particular system. The deeper the understanding on how a potential intruder may think, the easier it is to develop a secure system and easier to defend against potential attacks.
