Robert started to work in IT in 1996 and his learning curve was really steep from the beginning. Started as computer technician, “cable guy” and a developer in one single person, which gave him an overview of the “big picture” early in the process. During early 2000 he decided to continue his career as a systems administrator and only few years later security kicked in and “drag” Robert into this really difficult, but yet rewarding area. From 2008 he started to work mostly on a security consulting and penetration testing, where he settled for a few years (2012-2014) in the best Croatian PT company Infigo. Today he is self-employed working as a trainer, security consultant and penetration tester.
