🔎 “Looking for good mentors that will guide and escort me has helped me through my career. I’m not good at sales — this is something that I have to admit. But still, I found the right success partners that would push me to the right customers. This pushes me towards interesting positions.”

🔎 “Whenever I go to surveys of companies that I’m responsible for, I always tell them: embrace the auditor. Whatever the auditor finds, you’ll still have the chance and the time to fix it.”

🔎 “I could be a CISO for one company and do everything in one place. But, I’m taking bits and bites from different industries while looking from a high-level perspective. That’s the beauty of being a vCISO.”
