Bertrand combines business acumen, professional expertise and a deep understanding of pirating and the deep web to develop his practical, effective, and tailor-made solutions.

Bringing him on board will help us to consolidate our top cybersecurity advisory services team here at Richter. “We live in a world where information security threats are greater than ever and target all types of organizations.
