Chief Information Security Officer,
Certified network expert

Self-taught, autonomous, responsive, rigorous and with an excellent team spirit, I realized the implementation of numerous IT projects, notably related to the security of infrastructure.

And, within the framework of my various functions, I ensured the management of several teams. In addition, I actively contributed to the development of the PSSI.

Passionate about my job as systems administrator and computer networks, I also acquired software development skills, as well as management of around thirty sites of which I am the founder, the architect and the director of publication (CNIL, RGPD).

In addition, I have acquired good experience in dealing with cyber attacks since, having been faced in particular with a violent computer attack, I knew how to federate the teams IT to restart the company (3000 people) quickly and without aftereffect.

2013 - 2020

Systems and networks administrator, certified network expert


With the new team, very dynamic and very nice, arrived almost at the same time as me in the company, and under the impetus of the CIO, we transformed the IT infrastructure by migrating the initial environment, which was under NOVELL system , efficient but obsolete, towards an ultramodern environment, virtualized with VMWARE, under MICROSOFT and LINUX systems, and with real-time redundancy at all levels, including concerning the power supply of the elements of the core network, at the headquarters of the company, the point of interconnection of about fifty French branches and the Moroccan network (a company of Italian origin, international in scope and notably present in Morocco).

In 2019, the company suffered a violent and destructive computer attack, like many other companies in the same period. With the help of the entire technical team and the CIO, I managed to restore the infrastructure quickly and without aftereffect, saving about 3000 jobs at the same time. Having become a benchmark in IT security, I strengthened the security of the entire infrastructure, at the request of the CIO. Joseph MICACCIA, Certified network expert

E-commerce technical manager

Network Solutions

Within an e-commerce start-up, I built the IT infrastructure from A to Z, by first carrying out an in-depth study of technical needs, with particular attention paid to the "IT security" aspect. Then I implemented the chosen solution, in record time.

1999 - 2011

Network administrator / IT project manager / Operations manager


Within the regional unit of a large national company, I developed the computer network which was at the embryonic stage at the time of my arrival, in particular by using the powerful CISCO equipment which slept in the cupboards, and by motivating the technical team, who waited for time to pass ... before I got them out of their lethargy (pseudo officials). And I myself developed the computer tools that were lacking. In this company, I was to stay there six months. I stayed there for twelve years ... a period during which, at the same time, my personal life was booming.

Always think twice before clicking


Computer security is everyone's business. Even if you are not an IT expert, you can actively participate: always think twice before clicking on a link!... but if you've clicked on a malicious link, don't worry because the CISO will tell you that the wasp that stings the turtle will break its sting.
