Nick Savvides: Information Security Specialist & Strategist
The best way to contact me is via email, LinkedIn or Twitter. Follow me on Twitter for miscellaneous musings on security, beer and the occasional insight (although more recently I am generally only active during events/conferences etc.).
I am not crazy, I don't speak about myself in the 3rd person, this is my speaker bio.
