About

I am an experienced and results-oriented professional with a robust background in IT Audit, Regulatory Compliance, and Internal Controls. Throughout my career, I have demonstrated a strong understanding of IT governance frameworks such as NIST, GDPR, CCPA, ISO, SOC 1 & 2, SOX, HIPAA, PCI-DSS, and COBIT, among others. My expertise extends to conducting comprehensive audits in complex IT environments, ensuring adherence to regulatory requirements and best practices. I excel in communicating audit results and recommendations to stakeholders, fostering strong relationships with clients and internal teams. My skills include managing IT compliance programs, overseeing vulnerability assessments, and leading SOX, PCI-DSS, and SOC 2 recertification efforts. I am adept at navigating GRC platforms and am committed to staying abreast of emerging trends in IT audit and cybersecurity regulations. My proficiency spans IT management, systems development, implementation, and maintenance, supported by a thorough knowledge of business processes. I am skilled in conducting audit research, drafting detailed reports, and collaborating effectively across departments to drive process improvements. With certifications including CISA and a strong educational foundation in Business Administration, I bring a disciplined approach to project management and risk assessment. Fluent in English, Italian, and basic Spanish, I leverage exceptional communication and interpersonal skills to deliver high-quality results under tight deadlines.

Best back-end engineers I've ever worked with...​

“I interviewed about a dozen different firms. DevsData LLC is truly exceptional – their backend developers are some of the best I’ve ever worked with. I’ve worked with a lot of very well-qualified developers, locally in San Francisco, and remotely, so that is not a compliment I offer lightly. I appreciate their depth of knowledge and their ability to get things done quickly. “
