Dallin Warne works as a cybersecurity engineer at Brigham Young University (BYU) specializing in network security and analysis. His knowledge includes advance firewalls, the Bro/Zeek intrusion detection system (IDS), network data analysis, and general cybersecurity principles.
While a student, Dallin gained practical experience through employment. As a freshman, he was the youngest network analyst at BYU’s network operation center (NOC) and quickly rose to become the youngest supervisor. He coordinated major incidents including major network disruptions and a disaster recovery along with other high-priority issues. As a leader over the training team, he revamped how analysts were trained and certified in their responsibilities.
Dallin later became a support analyst at web-scraping company Mozenda. He quickly mastered the products and services provided and soon moved departments to become a quality assurance engineer. He wrote acceptance criteria, test cases, and advocated for better user experience which lead to a better overall experience for customers.
Dallin also interned at Hughes Network Systems, an satellite internet service provider. He headed a project to better analyze data by implementing and using Logstash, ElasticSearch, and Grafana and honed his Python skills while doing so.
While he finished up his Bachelor’s degree, Dallin became a network security engineer at BYU’s Office of Information Technology. His senior capstone project was designing and building an intrusion detection system (IDS) using Bro. Even as a student employee he wrote python scripts, analyzed network traffic, did DDoS mitigation, optimized next-gen firewalls, configured Cisco gear, and maintained content filters.
