About

My name is Jonathan Dupré. I'm a security professional with an expertise in cloud security. I help tech executives deploy software with security in mind.

I built my expertise over 10+ years through various roles, such as software developer, DevOps engineer, and security manager. Most of my professional experience was built at startups and as a freelancer.

I am a Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP), and I hold the AWS Certified Security - Specialty certification since 2019.

Testimonials

Stellar consultant who is truly there to help his clients. He always goes beyond the call of duty.

Jonathan is brilliant in a particular way I notice: He can take complex knowledge and break it down into simple, understandable language. He simplifies complexity and complexifies simplicity, wherever the natural direction is for knowledge to become more 'known', alive, shared.

He listens with this skill as well, which makes him able to focus and expand people simultaneously. It's a beautiful gift.

Anybody can claim to be solution oriented, resourceful or creative. However, it doesn't mean much if you don't "get it" first. Getting it means having the curiosity to understand the industry, the clients, the technology, the risks, the deadlines, etc. This is a necessity before channeling your thoughts and actions toward a greater outcome.

To put it in simple words, well, Jonathan "gets it".
