Danilo Massa started his career in 1995 and has had extensive technology experience in management and Cyber Security.

He is one of the leading experts on cyber threats and has led aizoOn in one of the most important research programs on advanced Malware identification systems which we have coined the "aramis" platform.

Danilo is entirely well-versed in Cybersecurity: from vulnerability assessments and penetration testing of integrated systems to the safety of critical infrastructure, to the drafting and implementation of procedures and processes.

Danilo, along with being a professor at some of the most prestigious technology security universities in Europe, is also a SANS certified trainer in the GIAC program (Global Information Assurance Certification) in Penetration Testing, Malware Reverse Engineering, Incident Handling and Digital Forensic.

He took part in the design of the first and second level University Masters - in particular with the University of Genoa, and he studied teaching and formulated an amount of the curriculum as an expert in several Master Degrees.

He is responsible for numerous strategic defence projects, and he is one of the technological leaders implementing a newly developed cyber range in Europe; this is an European/NATO initiative designed to educate and prepare business and public entities how to defend against sophisticated cyber intrusions.

He now holds the role of CTO of aramis and of the manager of Technology Business Unit cyber security.
