    Karsten Speckmann, Confidential at NATO Communication and Information Agency

    “I had the honour to serve as Company Supervisor for the award winning EMBA Research project of Mr Ali. He chose the topic of Cyber Security and Phishing Awareness to directly support businesses with the outcome. It proves Sheraz's ability to visualize where today's organizations find a demanding challenge and need effective and efficient solutions. His borderless determination and positive can do attitude immediately won me over, humbly serving as his Mentor, too. No challenge he did not pick up, tackle - and master, himself. The results of his Research may be topped only by the value of him working with your organization to build a Resiliant Human Network. I wholeheartedly recommend Sheraz towards resolution of your current and future security and business challenges.”
