Information Security Professional

With over 15 years of experience in Information Security, from the low-level technical implementations to the high-level management and compliance view, I offer the knowledge and understanding that you need to stay safe in the digital world.
Outside Udemy, I work as a consultant, speaker and occasional interim manager for all things security. Inside Udemy, I want to pass on my experience and expertise so future generations don't repeat the mistakes that the industry has made for the past 10 years.

I am a Certified Information Security Manager (CISM, verified link below) and I have numerous speeches, presentations and publications to my name. I have been Senior Manager IT Compliance for a large telecommunications company for many years, as well as a freelancer information security consultant. I also took an active part in making Security Enhanced Linux popular. Recently I advised a major government project on its information security.

In my spare time, I create games. From pen&paper roleplaying games to computer games, this has been my passion for most of my life. My main interest is games with a story, games with depth and meaning. But I'm also interested in game theory including the mathematics of the same name, and game philosophy, which yes, is a thing (book hint: "Finite and Infinite Games, James P. Carse").
