Previously I worked as International Sales and Marketing Manager in two companies, which specialise in wide range of consultancy services such as information security, risk management, business continuity and IT governance in the Middle East.

My current work as security consultant includes, specialising in information security coaching, helping my clients to become more effective and efficient typically through the strategic of information systems, risk management and security governance. Having significant experience of the commercial sector in various parts of the globe working with variety of cultures and work ethics and at the same time educated at PhD level in information security enables me to understand current security requirements and threat landscape.

I believe my experience in the IT / security industry and academia enables me for better understanding the importance of both fields to achieve better outcome in GRC environment.
