He has been a project manager for both national and international projects, leading some of them in a diverse range of activities, from banking to defense or industry. He managed teams from 2 to 90 members on integration or consulting missions with very different backgrounds (engineers R&D, consultants, professionals, etc.). He developed some business and communication skills that made him a recognized expert in the topic of security, being regularly interviewed in the media. He describes his approach to security as being very pragmatic: for each client, identify the business risks when facing a cyber attack and identify the technical, organizational and legal measures to address those risks.
