About me

I’m an IT Analyst who specializes in cybersecurity. I have more than 15 years of professional experience. After working for a long time in the infrastructure field, I started to specialize in cybersecurity.

Since I also studied Communication Sciences, I think awareness plays an essential role in the task of Information Security. Because of this, as a specialist in Data Loss Prevention Processes, I believe it’s extremely necessary to use policies that collaborate and work towards both the education and awareness of the users.

As a reader of psychology and team development books, I always seek to put into practice motivational theories and dynamics of speech that can also be useful when performing Social Engineering exercises.
