Are You trying to get your first job in cybersecurity, elevate your career, improve skills, get a raise or anything else? I am here to help. Most likely I or my mentees have already faced same challenges and I know how to help You.

Throughout my career I worked as Cybersecurity Researcher, Consultant, Engineer and Architect. This exposure gives me a complete understanding of cybersecurity problems which organizations face and most efficient ways to solve them. More importantly I will share this knowledge with you.

I took part in a review and editing of ISO 21434. I conducted penetration tests and TARAs for various embedded devices (including automotive), traditional IT networks and cloud environments. I created various security concepts and security architectures ranging from simple embedded systems to complex hypervisor environments.

I have experience preparing and rolling out Secure SDLC across big organizations. I went through a complete secure software development lifecycle (Secure SDLC) from security requirements and architecture elicitation to validation and verification. And I know how to support development teams on each stage of the way.

I have a bachelor and three master degrees in a security domain. I have two of the most challenging technical cybersecurity certifications:
+ Offensive Security Certified Professional - 24 hour exam
+ Offensive Security Certified Expert - 48 hour exam
This combination gives me a strong technical foundation in various security domains ranging from cryptography and network security to physical security and social engineering.

I am here to bring these skills and experience to help You grow or start your career in cybersecurity.

Alex has been an extremely helpful mentor. I originally wanted to find a mentor who could help me in achieving my goals while also being a second pair of eyes. I've found from working with Alex over the last year that his guidance kept me on track. I was also able to achieve one of my biggest goals of finally breaking 100k. Throughout my mentorship, Alex was also able to provide a ton of excellent ideas and strategies that I was able to use to excel in my career. I would highly recommend Alex!

It's rare finding someone technical & communicative like Alex. I have started this program with zero knowledge in the security area, and not so confident in my abilities. During the initial session, Alex understood my strengths and made a personalised action plan for me. My confidence grew a lot by accomplishing various tasks, and after few months I started looking for jobs with security implications. If you are looking for a career coach with security expertise, I can't recommend enough Alex. His knowledge and mentoring methods are at the highest standards.
