How did you get to become an expert in your key topics?

Becoming a hacker as a teenager, when I’ve started disassembling my computer to understand the system, while classmates playing Pacman and Tetris. Since that time I am close to the hacker community and its positive attitudes of creativity and responsibility to make tech safe. Nowadays, I support organizations and companies in creating a safe and secure world by my expertise and building a bridge between business, politics, maker, and hacker communities.

What sub-topics are you most passionate about?

There are too many and topics are not static. I like to share and inspire on: AI in Cybersecurity, Body Modding and IoT, Humans in Cybersecurity, Business threats, Risk Mitigation, Cybercrime…

Who influences you within these topics?

B2B C-Levels: CEO, CTO, CISOS but as well members of Maker- and Cybersecurity Communities.

What challenges are brands facing in this space?

Cybersecurity and IoT are complex. Many brands are failing to tell marketing bullshit instead of appealing stories. Cybersecurity is almost reputation and word to mouth than spending money on ads: share and inspire.

What do you think the future holds in this space?

The Internet is the worst and the best happened to mankind!

What brands are leading the way in this space?

Siemens, Splunk, Teamviewer, Cloudflare, EU Commission.

If a brand wanted to work with you, which activities would you be most interested in collaborating on?

Video Interviews, Livestreams, Podcasts, Speaking, Webinars.
