Bridging the gap between the board and CISO

I am passionate about secure digital transformation and digital resilience. I firmly believe that technology can improve people’s lives and that information security adds value to the business and can create a competitive advantage.

Digital resilience is more than cybersecurity and extends beyond technology. It is essential to focus on people, processes, and culture to reinforce the relationship between business, information security and IT.

As a trusted advisor, I work closely with C-level teams to bridge the gap between the management board, IT and the security office. As a CISO (Chief Information Security Officer) I align the security strategy with the business strategy, increase the level of information security maturity, strengthen digital resilience and manage information security teams to achieve the desired goals.

What can I do for your organization?

With over 10 years of management experience in the field of digital transformation, information security governance, strategy and strategy execution, I help business leaders align their information security and business strategy, mitigating their information security risks, increasing their digital resilience, and managing multidisciplinary teams to achief the desired goals. My approach involves not only technology but also emphasizing people, processes, and culture. This is why I can help organizations comply with current EU regulations and prepare them for new EU regulations including NIS2 (Network and Information Security Directive) and DORA (Digital Operational Resilience Act).

Never has it been more important to build a secure digital society. With AI (Artificial Intelligence) other advances, digital transformation will have a greater impact on society in the next five years than it has in the last fifteen. Within the European Union, several regulations will support the effort to protect EU citizens and businesses, and shape Europe’s secure digital future. These include:

  • NIS2: Network and Information Security Directive
  • DORA: Digital Operational Resilience Act
  • RCE: Resilience of Critical Entities Directive
  • CRA: Cyber Resilience Act
  • AIA: Artificial Intelligence Act
  • AIL: Artificial Intelligence Liability Directive

Even the most advanced security systems are ineffective when people are the weakest link and security is not ingrained in the cultural mindset and business strategy. That is why I focus on technology, processes, people and culture to achief goals.
