Development Security Architect
- Perugia IT
Simone Curzi has a 15 years experience as a Consultant and Delivery Architect within Microsoft Consulting Services, plus 2 years in Microsoft Customer Service & Support organization as Senior PFE specialized on Security. As such, he has gained strong competencies around Software Architectures, Methodologies and Security.
Application Security has been one of Simone's main areas of interests, even before joining Microsoft: since late 1990s he has cultivated the passion for Security and this has led Simone to publish a set of articles on Cryptography on an important Italian Magazine for Developers.
Simone has envisioned a long term journey that will allow him to be a more complete Security Expert. This has allowed him to achieve many important goals, such as participating as a Speaker at various Microsoft internal technical events (TechReady), being selected to be part of the Microsoft InfoSecurity Force European Team, be a recognized contributing member of the Microsoft SDL Community and a Threat Modeling Expert.
Simone is certified by (ISC)2 as a CSSLP Professional, since April 2016.
On May 2016, Simone has assumed the role of Lead of the Worldwide Microsoft Technical Community for the Security Development Lifecycle.
CyberSecurity Consultants in Microsoft have the role of working on engagements where the goal is to protect, detect, or respond to malicious activity from determined human adversaries. As a CyberSecurity Senior Consultant, my goal is to work on projects based on the current Microsoft CyberSecurity offerings, for Customers in Europe and beyond.
My personal goal, as ever, is to contribute to expand the Application Security practice in Microsoft, as the Worldwide Lead for the Application Security Community at Microsoft.
Simone has started building a strong foundation on Infrastructure Security topics like Active Directory, PKI and DirectAccess, and also he has further developed his knowledge around Security Development Lifecycle (SDL) and Threat Modeling: more specifically, he has developed for Microsoft a new Workshop on Threat Modeling and an Application Security Review offering, that he has delivered to some Customers with great success.
