– What I do: CISO / CPO in a box – Endorse the managerial responsibilies for the CyberSecurity and Privacy of your organization:

Advisor – Bring a combination of business acumen, enterprise risk management and sheer cybersecurity/privacy expertise to advise organizations at their strategic and operational levels.

Conduct projects to build or evolve CyberSecurity / Privacy departments/programs within your organization, including hiring adequate permanent resources, deploying proper controls, interacting with stakeholders of different nature, as well as regulators.

Review CyberSecurity of your organization with effectiveness, resilience and compliance as main drivers.

Review Privacy Programs to ensure compliance with GDPR or other domestic standards.

– How it helps: Contrary to advisors who talk in terms of “best practices”, my demonstrable experience is based on building, running and managing cybersecurity and privacy departments for very large, complex, regulated and sensitive organizations, including governments. I bring with me a strong no non-sense, business first, efficient and resilient mindset. I love what I do with a passion, and it shows in the results I achieve.
