DevTech: Branko Dzakula, ‘Security Awareness’
Biography: Branko Džakula, Chief Information Security Officer, DevTech
Branko is a renowned cybersecurity expert from Montenegro. Started his career in Telenor, gaining deep insight into data transport and how to secure it. From 2g to 5g networks he watched the evolution of data transfer and the way security evolved with it. Years later his career took a flight to a Serbian national airline, Air Serbia, where he had an opportunity to build information security management system (ISMS) from the ground up.
Securing a large airline company does not come as an easy task, but team effort and group synergies served as the best and modern approach that he had a pleasure to be a part of. His recent transfer to a young software development company, DevTech is a move towards the progressive market and the proof of his relentless efforts to stay at the top of the game.
