    Dr. Jeimy Cano has been a remarkable expert advisor on computer security and computer forensics matters, at least, since 15 years ago, when I had the pleasure to meet him. He is always ready to help to the information security community in Latin America and beyond, offering his expert vision to solve global concerns like cybersecurity, legislation of new technologies, computer forensics, and so on. Particularly, he is a reference for the banking security arena, from where I have received his unconditional support and advising. On the academics and research arena, Dr. Cano is one of the most devoted professors and he is author of several books and refereed articles. His blog is a great reading, providing us with new perspectives and new knowledge to become better security professionals.
