"With a clear focus on 'we must keep the IT environment safe and secure', Pascal is mainly considered as being a manager and a generalist in security. After more than 23 years of working experience within a governmental public security organisation, he got the possibility to strive for evolutive excellence and it also gave him a deeper insight on security matters and practical efforts. Security awareness by the user itself is one of his personal hot topics, because every technology, even how modern and evolved it is, has its boundaries. But he understands the same need for this technological environment to keep up with all threats. A balanced combination of both human and machine seems to be on his agenda as manager and IT consultant the last year.'
