Jean-Philippe Rivard Lauzier My main strength is definitely to be able to understand business and technical concepts. I translate both languages between stakeholders. I strike a line on what is really important in order to protect your organization.

Location I am currently located in Montreal, Canada. However, most mandates are performed remotely for different organizations. Online collaboration has never been easier!
I would like to contribute to these fields by simplifying important concepts. To help organizations and entrepreneurs to be more aware of their security challenges.
Professional Path

I have been working on different online projects since the beginning of 2000s. I maintained a website with services dedicated to webmasters for a few years. My first entrepreneurial experience was related to web hosting services and domain registrations. I also had the occasion to work on different technical mandates until 2014. Mainly web application development and servers’ management. Thus, I started my career on a more technical path.

These days, my career has been more focused on information security and IT compliance. Since 2014, I have been working in this field for consulting firms, organizations and as an independent consultant.
