Cyber Czar, South Africa

Currently, I am taking a brief break from my PhD studies at the University of Cape Town, where I was researching the implications of a cyber sovereignty discourse on Cybersecurity and National Security in the South African context.
As a graduate of the University of Johannesburg, I earned a BSc in Computer Science (Cum laude) and an MSc in Computer Science. I hold multiple certifications in the ICT field, such as CISSP, CISM, PRINCE2, ITIL, COBIT, and ISO/IEC 27001.
In addition to receiving various certificates from notable universities and organizations, I also hold Cybersecurity Certificates from DiploFoundation, Advanced Computer Security Certificates from Stanford, Internet Law certificates from the University of Geneva, and Technology and Media Policy Certificates from Oxford University.
