About the Author

Karina Astudillo B. is an IT consultant specialized in information security, networking and Unix/Linux. She is a Computer Engineer, MBA, and has international certifications such as: Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH), Computer Forensics US, Cisco Security, Network Security, Internet Security, CCNA Routing and Switching, CCNA Security, Cisco Certified Academy Instructor (CCAI), Hillstone Certified Security Professional (HCSP) and Hillstone Certified Security Associate (HCSA).
Karina began her career in the world of networking in 1995, thanks to an opportunity to work on an IBM project at his alma mater, the Escuela Superior Politécnica del Litoral (ESPOL). Since then, the world of networking, operating systems and IT security, fascinated her to the point of becoming her passion.
Years later, once gaining experience working in the area of customer service in the transnational corporation ComWare, she became first an independent consultant in 2002 through Consulting Systems, and after a while the co-founder in 2007 of Elixircorp S.A., a computer security company.
Alongside consulting, Karina has always had an innate passion for teaching, so she took the opportunity of becoming a professor at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (FIEC) of ESPOL in 1996.
Currently she is an instructor for the Cisco Networking Academy Program, the Master in Management Information Systems (MSIG) and the Master in Applied Computer Security (MSIA) at FIEC-ESPOL.
Because of her teaching experience she considered to include as part of the offer of her company, preparation programs in information security, including workshops on Ethical Hacking. By posting the success of these workshops on Elixircorp S.A. Facebook page (, she began receiving applications from students from different cities and countries asking for courses, only to be disappointed when they were answered that they were dictated live in Ecuador.
That's when the idea of writing information security books was born, to convey - without boundaries - the knowledge of the live workshops taught at Elixircorp.
On her leisure time Karina enjoys reading science fiction, travel, share with her family and friends and write about her on third person ;-D
