As the COO of Open Security Alliance (OSA), I lead a team of IS, IT, and business professionals who provide practical and visionary solutions and advisory services for various clients' security needs. With over 14 years of experience in this role, I have successfully delivered projects in information and data asset management and security architecture design, security posture assessment and optimization, product-led solutions, enterprise software asset management, data governance and classification, threat and risk intelligence, and awareness and training.

My mission is to help clients address their security challenges by co-creating solutions that align with their business strategy, needs, and environment. I work with enterprises of all sizes, governments, law enforcement agencies, and public entities across different sectors and geographies. I have also established and grown the cybersecurity practice at OSA, offering GRC and technical services such as VAPT, AppSec, SOC, and MSSP. Additionally, I serve as an advisor for several organizations in the fields of cyber peace, digital forensics, critical infrastructure protection, and cyberwar. I am a certified CISA, CISM, and IRCA Internal Auditor, and a Microsoft MVP in Enterprise Security.
