Safety Detective: How did you get started in the cybersecurity industry?
Mauro Celentano: I started almost 10 years ago as an engineer; security and privacy in the IT field have always fascinated me. I knew that one day the World Wide Web would have become popular among the people and that the privacy and security of sensitive personal data would be critical.
I developed most of my skills in cybersecurity working as Director in Defenx, a company which joined the London Stock Exchange in 2015 and of with whom I am a shareholder.
