Thierno Barry, PhD

I am a Doctor in Cybersecurity and Ethical Hacker with over 10 years of experience in the fields of offensive and defensive cybersecurity as well as electronic intelligence. I am currently the Head of the Product Security department at Mediatek UK, a leading global designer of electronic chips for smartphones, tablets, notebooks, Smart TVs, and more, with over 30% market share. Before joining Mediatek, I worked for the telecommunications giant, Huawei, where I was the head of the UK Mobile Security Lab, leading the team responsible for Huawei smartphone cybersecurity.
I started my career as a cybersecurity researcher at the French Atomic and Alternative Energy Commission (CEA), and later I taught Computer Programming at the National Polytechnic Institute (INP) of Grenoble. I then joined Thales Group, a multinational defence, space and digital security specialist. During this period, I led multiple security assessments, penetration testing, and certification projects on behalf of the French National Security Agency (ANSSI).
