For over a decade, he has worked in collaboration with cross-functional teams across complete lifecycles for a portfolio of data privacy/protection & information security related projects within the Europe, Middle East & Africa (EMEA) region to manage stakeholders at senior management level, provide subject matter expertise on data privacy/protection & information security especially from the perspective of privacy by design/default as well as advise on risk and the effectiveness of mitigating controls.
