Federico Maggi

I enjoy doing research on various cyber-security topics.

I work with Trend Micro Research in a global team that focuses on technology and cyber-crime research.

After more than 10 years, I concluded that I’m still around in the infosec area because it gives me so many opportunities to solve new exciting problems every day.
