Thanks to his police work, Christophe found a way to share his ICT knowledge with society. The individual impact he had as a geek on the functioning and optimization of certain processes motivated him after a few fascinating years, to retrain as a detective, specializing in cybercrime. In the meantime, he also teaches and participates in European projects, awareness campaigns and information days.
