Sahan Fernando, Director, Managed Services, has just celebrated his six-year anniversary at Intrinium. His charismatic energy and dedicated work ethic bring a unique leadership style to our Executive Team. Originally from Phoenix, Arizona, Sahan began his undergrad at Gonzaga University where he is currently in post-graduate studies for his masters in Organizational Leadership.
His commitment to his work is unprecedented – he joined Intrinium’s fledgling SOC as an analyst and rose quickly to an Information Security Analyst: Team Lead, to Information Security Engineer, to Manager, Security Operations, to his current role as Director. Sahan is a natural problem solver with technical expertise and business acumen overseeing a growing team that has created a competitive learning environment which is critical to work in Information Security. The landscape is always changing so knowledge sharing, curiosity, and consistent research are critical for the success of the operation. More than anything else, he is passionate about solving our client’s IT and Information Security challenges to empower their business needs.
In the rare scenario when Sahan is not responding to our client’s needs, he is coaching Gonzaga University Men’s Rowing, hanging out with his Pembroke Welsh Corgi (name redacted), listening to new music, or traveling. Last December one of his favorite bands brought him all the way to Sayreville, New Jersey – a far away venture from Spokane, Washington (and as he admits, not the wisest choice in December). But, well worth the adventure. If he has the time to game, he will play The Ace Attorney series and other related items but, time is limited these days. One day, when it is time to stop problem–solving and retire from Information Security, he looks forward to finally relaxing and traveling or doing whatever he wants. But, until then, he is looking forward to continuing to learning at industry conferences, spending time on client sites and navigating the ever changing Infosec world to help Intrinium grow.
