I'm a Senior Security Engineer at Mastercard, responsible for building and leading its Offensive Security Program, while managing a geographically distributed and agile team performing penetration testing and red teaming engagements to evaluate the security of Mastercard's networks. In addition, I'm also responsible for providing security consultancy around the migration of the company to cloud native technologies, by ensuring the robustness of the cloud infrastructure, and the security and integration of containerization technologies (i.e., Docker and Kubernetes) within the CI pipeline.
Previously, I was a Security Consultant at MWR Infosecurity, working extensively on security assurance projects (with a specialisation in mobile applications), and looking after research for MWR's UK mobile practice. While at MWR, I was heavily involved in research surrounding mobile security: I created Needle (the iOS Security Testing Framework) and the "Offensive iOS Exploitation" training, which I delivered at international security conferences.
I hold a Master's Degree in Engineering of Computing Systems from the Politecnico di Milano University, and international certifications such as CISSP (Certified Information Systems Security Professional), AWS CSA (Certified Solutions Architect - Associate), OSCP (Offensive Security Certified Professional), and CREST CRT (Registered Penetration Tester).
I both published and presented at several security conferences including Black Hat, AppSec, DEEPSEC, Bsides, ACSAC, CCS, and NATO's CYCON. I'm a contributor of the OWASP Project and a Technical Reviewer of both technical books and IEEE Journals.
