Welcome to my Blog! My name is Charlie Soto I am a certified Cyber Geek and I’m addicted to motorbikes! I hold a Master’s of Science from the University of West London and a slew cyber security certifications (CISSP, CISM, C|CISO, CIAM, TOGAF, CDPSE++). I was also a member of CSA Zero Trust experts working group developing training and giving back to the community.

I have been living in South East Asia for the last 6 years and counting, having worked in pretty much all the countries in the region. I currently work at Mandiant now part of Google Cloud Delivering executive Cyber Security Services including vCISO, Tabletop Exercises, Security Program Assessments and Cyber Defense uplifts. I have been focused primarily on the Thai market for the last three years understanding the nuances of how things work in the land of smiles. I was also based out of Singapore for a couple of years running the Cyber Practice for ASEAN.

Join me as I share professional and personal discoveries in IT and security, all while balancing my love for Enduro motorcycle riding, travel, and culinary adventures. These are my own views and observations, not those of my current or past employers. Connect with me on LinkedIn for more!
