Christophe Limpalair

After learning first-hand why Application Security was important in his early teens, Christophe spent a number of years training individuals and organizations (SMB & F500) on how to use cloud services efficiently. After his journey of building two successful IT businesses to acquisition in the last six years, he realized that most also struggle with building secure software, so he co-founded Cybr and wrote this ebook as well as a corresponding course to help make the world a more secure place.
