Head of Presales - Quality at ATOS

I recently attended a masterclass on emotional firewalls led by Nadja El Fertasi, which was incredibly insightful. Nadja’s deep expertise shone through, especially during our engaging discussions on phishing examples and the importance of emotional and human firewalls against scams.
We also explored specific challenges and evolving legal responses in Morocco, alongside effective strategies like enhancing customer education and strengthening collaborative security measures.
