The business was unaware of any change and risk; hence Francesco pioneered the automated correlation of application and risk and FAIR modelling to quantify cybersecurity risk.
Also, Francesco has pioneered a methodology to derive ownership of code to the cloud to raise security incidents better and reduce manual labour and
Francesco has authored several publications from network security, cloud security whitepapers, and application security community whitepaper.
