About Robert Guana

I am Robert Nathaniel Gauna. I currently work for a private financial institution based in Southern California and New Jersey. It is one of the largest private banks in the world and security is part of a highly regulated industry such as finance.

I started as a developer for a startup that eventually became Jfax.com in the early 2000s. I wore many hats to support the QA and Dev labs, so I had to learn networking, databases and development. Part of it was exposure to information security which became a skill I learned to do as I had to create bastion web servers on the network facing the internet used by customers.

Later on, I worked in a financial institution as a developer and lead engineer, ensuring patches and applying security policies as needed and securing the application and host servers since I understood how the OS interacts with how the application is launched and runs within the OS.

Finally, leveraging my knowledge of working on different technologies and applications, I joined MUFG as a security analyst working on policy compliance, enforcing technical security standards and reporting on compliance as part of our regulatory requirements.

While working on my CISSP, I believe developing lessons along the way will help me reinforce more of the concepts I have absorbed as well as being able to teach others who are in the same journey as I am. That’s why I jumped on the opportunity on teaching here in Cybrary as soon as it happened.
