I started my professional career in 2001 as IT Software Engineer for 2 years and I decided in 2003 to return to school for advanced & specialized trainings in Networking & Security Engineering. Then, in 2005, I integrated the R&D division of Alcatel CIT (merged with Lucent Technologies in 2006 to form Alcatel-Lucent and acquired by Nokia in 2016) where I worked for 10 years on several topics including RCA (Root Cause Analysis) for Events Monitoring in GSM & GPRS mobile networks, Intelligent Notification Services for Unified Communications, SDN (Software-Defined Networking) & NFV (Network Function Virtualization) Security, Cloud Security & Data Protection.
During 7 out of these above 10 years, I had a great opportunity to work as Member of Technical Staff in an exciting R&D environment (Bell Labs) which is one of the best R&D centers in the world (in terms of innovations and number of Nobel Prizes).
Since 2015, I decided to leave the R&D activities to join the IT Cyber Security organization as Senior Security Analyst/Advisor and Cloud Security SME, to support the business transformation of the company.
Up to now, I contributed to several cloud security activities including:
- More than 120 security assessments of cloud solutions based on popular cloud services (e.g. Amazon Web Services, MS Azure, IBM SoftLayer, Google Cloud Platform, Salesforce.com, Office 365, SAP S/4HANA, etc.)
- Development of the corporate cloud security baseline
- Development of cloud security processes for private, public & hybrid cloud use cases, as well as the related security assessment questionnaires
- Leading the security of more than 200 cloud-based IT projects in several functional or business domains including HR, Finance, Sales & Marketing, Supply Chain & Procurement, R&D, etc.
In addition to my daily work, I’m teaching Cloud Computing & Cloud Security courses to Master’s degree students since 2016 (40 to 80 hours per year).
Since 2011, I’m also an active volunteer member in the French program Passeport Avenir (now Article 1) where I mentored Engineering schools’ students for 5 years and since 2016, I’m regularly sharing my experience with undergraduate students.
