My motto is to deliver the technology secure by design, as I strongly believe security is everyone’s responsibility.

My daily objective is to make sure our business  is kept protected from cybersecurity threats and keeping our infrastructure resilient, so we proactively address any vulnerabilities discovered. Thereby reducing potential loss of revenue and damage to their brand value.
