I am a cybersecurity enthusiast with over 10 years of experience in the field of information technology, working with Symfony v. 1.0 to 3 for the last 7 years.
As Software Architect and Security Software Engineer at CoSoSys, I led the development of its flagship award-winning Data Loss Prevention Solution, Endpoint Protector as well as the ground-breaking APIs for sensitive data analysis and classification that were integrated into sensitivity.io and were born out of my vision for more data secure applications starting at platform level.
In my free time, I enjoy giving back to the information security community and, as a board member of the Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP)’s branch in Cluj-Napoca, I often participate in the project’s meetups and presentations as both a speaker and organizer. I was also involved in raising awareness initiatives that highlighted the importance of Information Security for the general public both in their online and offline lives.
