Dilkin is a seasoned information security executive with over 20 years experience. He recently led the planning, sales and service delivery of cyber security of Kroll and Deloitte in Brazil. Before that, he worked at NET, Terra, CIPHER and Getronics.

Dilkin was one of the pioneers of payment card industry security in Brazil, was one of the first professionals in the country to be certified as a PCI QSA and was a part of the compliance efforts of the leading payment industry players in the country. In addition he is known for his deep expertise in risk assessment and management, compliance, crisis management, incident response, complex project management and delivery working at large enterprises of different verticals. Dilkin is also a member of the Brazilian Association for Internet of Things (ABINC).

Dani has ample experience in structuring leading sales and consulting teams in the information security market, and him joining the company will be instrumental in helping us meet the strong demand we are getting from the market”, says Alexandre Sieira, founder of Tenchi Security.

Gartner projects that the public cloud market will reach $214 billion US dollars in 2019, and that the YoY growth for Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) will be over 27%. This is a reflection of the growing adoption of cloud services by companies of all sizes and verticals aiming to rationalize costs and gain operational flexibility, agility and resilience.

The industry shift towards the cloud is presenting a challenge to organizations who often do not have the internal expertise to secure and ensure compliance of these environments. As an example, a sad consequence of this is the increasing number of high profile security incidents where sensitive data is leaked due to a misconfiguration of cloud services.

“Cloud computing also holds the promise of greater efficiency, automation and cost reduction for security and compliance, but that requires specialized knowledge and previous experience in its implementation”, says Sieira. He then adds “Tenchi Security was founded precisely to help organizations bridge that gap”.
