I am a lawyer and a Certified Ethical Hacker with a deep-rooted passion for information technology. I hold two Master's degrees in Law from LUISS University in Rome, specializing in Competition and Innovation Law with a focus on Privacy & Big Data, and Cybersecurity with a concentration in Artificial Intelligence and Biometrics. Additionally, I have earned a Master in Business Administration from Link Campus University, specializing in Blockchain and Cryptocurrency Economics, with a focus on Smart Contracts.

I am a qualified Lead Auditor for various ISO standards including ISO/IEC 27001, Europrivacy, ISO 22301, ISO 9001, ISO 37001, and ISO 20000-1. I am also a Risk Manager for ISO 31000 and an Internal Auditor for ISO 19011. I have obtained certifications as a PRINCE2 Project Manager and both CIPP/E and CIPP/M.

Currently, I serve as the Chief Cybersecurity Advisor at ICT Cyber Consulting, a legal-cybersecurity consultancy firm that originated as a spin-off from the ICT Legal Consulting law firm founded by Luca Bolognini and Paolo Balboni. My role involves advising multinational corporations and large companies on legal compliance concerning cybersecurity issues such as GDPR, NIS2, DORA, National Cybersecurity Perimeter, Telco, and 231/01.

I am a board member of the IIP, coordinating a team of researchers and overseeing research projects under the Horizon Europe framework for the Italian Institute for Privacy and data valorization, where I have been a researcher since 2016. I also teach at the Institute's Academy, leading courses in "Cybersecurity" and "Master of Data Protection & Data Protection Designer®," endorsed by the Italian Data Protection Authority.

Additionally, I lecture at the LUISS Guido Carli's Master in Cybersecurity, as part of a collaboration with ITHUM s.r.l., focusing on personal data protection and legal cybersecurity. I am an author of specialized articles and research papers on personal data protection and cybersecurity, including "Terrorism: Recognizing It to Prevent It," and co-author of "Privacy Discipline Code" (Giuffrè Francis Lefebvre, 2019 and 2024) and "Security Risk Management for the Internet of Things: Technologies and Techniques for IoT Security, Privacy, and Data Protection" (Now Publishers, 2020). I am also the deputy director of the scientific journal Law and Economics of Privacy.
