Information Security is like a hamburger – you never know what’s exactly inside until you try it.
I do recall when I finished University, such a great time, full of workshops and great friends around, sharing ideas about data protection and the challenges around security. That was the first time when I tested the complexities of InfoSec.
One big part of such a learning was influenced by the constant cooperation with different groups following a collaborative learning.
I believe that if we give someone a framework and freedom to explore a topic we will learn more easily together, instead of "listening" only.
I consider that a teacher should not be stodgy academic stuck in a conventional track of sharing his knowledge but rather a mentor that encourages professionals to achieve their personal goals. At the end, in some way or another, each of us has something to teach.
So from almost two decades, I've engaged in several security and data protection projects, teaching, mentoring and speaking. All these opportunities gave me the possibility to learn more, to exchange knowledge within the community, to meet amazing people and trying to be a better human.
I became then a passionate trainer in many areas related to Data Protection and InfoSec. I decided that I wanted to help others to improve their skills and capabilities to solve problems through different workshops.
I have carried out the process of learning as a fun activity. I find out that being a trainer is not just giving information to others to “pass an exam”. It is indeed a very human role, where every single day I find myself learning from others, sharing a common passion related to technology and discovering hidden diamonds.
