Who am i ?
I am the founder and CTO (Chief Technical Officer) of the Digital Network Group. My duties are to make strategic decisions for everything related to the technical, operational, as well as research and development issues in the group’s different companies and activities, and to get them implemented. I am also in charge of the management of the group’s image and public relations with shareholders, institutions and the media.
As a member of the NMIA (National Military Intelligence Association / USA), I also participate and intervene directly in many operational or field missions, such as: training and conferences; security applied to new technologies; perception and information management; crisis communications; investigating into information leakage; cyberstalking and cyber defense; economic, media, technology and counter-terrorism intelligence, besides I-War (Information Warfare).
I also deal with activities in the field of hosting (data center, housing, dedicated servers, facilities management and managed services…).
As an advisor to various organizations and media, I have acted as director of research at the “Centre International de Recherches et d’Etudes sur le Terrorisme” (International Center for Research and Studies on Terrorism) founded by Yves Bonnet, the former director of the DST (Direction de la surveillance du territoire / French counter-intelligence agency). I used to be a member of the KESAC (Kaspserky European Scientific Antivirus Center), and was policy officer for “I-War and Protection” assignements on behalf of the CJDSI.
I am also a founding member of the “Institut International de la Coordination et de la Réponse aux Attaques Informatiques” (International Institute for the Coordination and Response to Computer Attacks) and an honorary member of the IIHEC (Institut International des Hautes Etudes de la Cybercriminalité / International Institute for Advanced Studies on Cybercrime): founded by Daniel Martin, the creator and manager of the DST information system, who is the security director at the OECD, Registrar to the Court of Auditors, and involved in the meetings of the G8.
Finally, I teach at the ISMP (Institut Supérieur Management Projet / Institute for Project Management) in the post French A-levels, 5-year educational pathway, called “Project Manager, Transverse in Information Systems Security”, primarily in the areas of networks and computer security (intrusive techniques, Social Engineering, I-Warfare (electronic warfare, economic intelligence and perception management).
For the past 20 years, I have been known under the pseudonym of “Brain 0verride” and for over 12 years under the name of “Chris”, as an author and performer.
