Behind the Scenes.
Diego is one of those who believe you don’t need to go to University to be the best, but he went anyway. He went to study at Strayer University, Virginia, USA, where he got his Bachelor's Degree in Internetworking Technology. This, obviously opened a lot of doors. He went on to work in major Latinamerican ISPs and cybersecurity providers. During this time, he designed and monitored networks, configured 3G/4G mobile broadband technologies, led different infrastructure installations, and learned to secure all those networks.

In addition, across Diego's career, he has also gotten certifications from Cisco and McAfee and pursued others like AWS, Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH), and Wireshark.

Being hungry for more knowledge and challenging experiences, he traveled across the world to Seoul, South Korea, where he got his Master's degree. In a fantastic university, besides drinking beer for breakfast, he also collaborated on the development of a Wireless Sensor Networks project; one of those key technologies that led to the now popular, IoT.

Diego also traveled to Africa to collaborate with the Chinese mega-company, Huawei, to design, maintain, monitor, and develop the 4G/LTE networks for about two years. After some tough cold nights sleeping inside A/C powered data centers, rather than under the beautiful African sky, Diego dreamed to become a journalist and share all his knowledge with others.
Jumping Into Tech Journalism.
Now, Diego loves what he does: Tech Journalism. Although dreaming about it, was smooth and fun, opening the way has been a wild ride. Now, six years have passed, and Diego is making a living and full-time career as a tech journalist.

Today, he tests products; from proxy servers, VPNs, network monitoring tools, and WAFs. He writes about them and gives his opinion. He researches the web, sets up virtual and cloud labs, reads from fellow experts, identifies trends in tech, and shares his opinion.

Diego also writes about server installations, securing those servers, threat intelligence, VPNs, proxies, TOR, P2P, online privacy, and more. He has been covering news on SiliconANGLE Media, has published in Threat Post, Lanner Electronics, Cloudbric, PCWDLD, ITT Systems, SecurityGladiators, Rapidseedbox, and many other leaders in the networking and cybersecurity industry.
