Alex Petrescu

Security Consultant/Team Lead


Alex is a young enthusiastic and hard working IT guy. He joined our team of volunteers after he had attended Peak IT #003 and shortly after he offered to hold an 8-week Cybersecurity training in AgileHub. 

With 9 years experience in IT (the last 5 being a Security Consultant in a big IT company), he is eager to always learn and to share the lessons with the community. Throughout the past few years, he has been studying and got certified in areas such as Cloud, Digital Identity and Security. 

When attending his trainings, one is surprised by the combination of knowledge and charisma that make participants connect with him. 

 In his free time, he is passionate about psychology and travelling and also playing guitar and music in general. Alex has secretly told us he intends to participate at some contests in the near future. You can call us subjective and we will definitely vote for him.
