Viktor Yakovlyev

Sr. Cloud Security Engineer | Prodigy Education

I’m Viktor, a senior cloud security engineer with over a decade of experience in software. I love cybersecurity and I excel at forensics. I get joy out of seeing the happy and aghast faces when teaching exploit flows to the engineering teams I protect. Previously, I’ve spent a lot of time in DevOps roles building CD pipelines and internal tooling that provided zero-downtime deployments for millions of users. I’ve also spent years in backend and frontend product roles writing features in C# and JavaScript.

Originally from Ukraine and now living in Canada. I’m a full-time autodidact currently enjoying woodworking, photography, videography, weightlifting, cooking, and SCUBA diving.
