Antonio Merola

Rome - Italy

Involved in the Information and Communication Technology field since 1993, I started my career in teaching, and continued afterwards as Microsoft Systems Engineer working for a Microsoft solution provider. Since 2000, I have been focusing on Network and Information Security, and with over ten years of professional hands-on experiences, I am able to provide a wide range of expert consultancy with regard to vulnerability assessment, penetration testing, perimeter protection with firewall and IDS, system hardening, network & system monitoring and security architecture design. When not too busy with these duties, I also enjoy authoring, together with writing technical articles, and speaking at various public and private events. I developed and built my skills primarily at telecommunication companies, thanks to the variety of positions held and the projects on which I participated.
