Alonso da Silva, Cyber Expert, Munich Re

Alonso is a senior cyber security expert with more than 17 years of global business experience that led him from penetration testing to strategic threat intelligence advisory.

Graduated in electronics later to become a security specialist, his curious nature allowed him to accumulate a wide variety of knowledge across many verticals:  health, finance, media, retail, transport, airspace, defence and energy, to name some.

Alonso holds some of the most valuable cyber security accreditations in the market: he had scored within the top 6% worldwide when he sat his Certified Information Security Manager (CISM) exam.

Entrepreneur and technical sales director before joining the insurance sector, Alonso possesses a rare skillset: he is comfortable with both sides of the cyber challenge: the technical and the business angles, enabling a genuine, two-way dialogue and understanding.
