Well, maybe that's not how it goes for you, because we don't know you... yet.

The most memorable project I worked on was the UAE PASS Assessment which lasted around 6 months. The goal was to provide consultancy services for the European Union Agency for Cybersecurity (ENISA)'s work in electronic identification, digital wallets, and trust services. This project was particularly memorable due to my first opportunity to collaborate with international stakeholders. One of the key challenges was navigating the cultural clash and diverse perspectives on digital identity between European and Middle Eastern stakeholders. The experience enhanced my analytical skills and deepened my understanding of cybersecurity and digital identity systems.

  • What changed for you when you became a full-time employee?

Transitioning to a full-time role brought a new level of commitment and engagement. I was entrusted with greater responsibilities and had more influence over project outcomes. This shift also allowed me to develop a deeper connection with my team and understand the broader strategic goals of Cybernetica.

I would tell my past self to be more confident and proactive in seeking out learning opportunities. Don’t be afraid to ask questions or take on challenging tasks.
