Téodor Chabin has been in the cybersecurity field for more than 15 years and has worked internationally, in Paris, Washington, DC, and San Francisco. Following revelations on Stuxnet, protecting Nuclear Power Plants in cyberspace became a strategic priority for France. The defense company Chabin worked for asked him to develop a means to protect nuclear power plants from cyber terrorist attacks. To achieve this, he used teams from both the defense world and the nuclear world.
Later, Chabin launched his first cybersecurity startup in France. His purpose was to protect small businesses against cybercriminals. This was done by packaging all Information Technology (IT) and cybersecurity components into a single box. In order to expand his work, he later decided to move to the Washington DC Area, in the Cybersecurity Corridor. During a three-month cybersecurity accelerator training program at MACH37, he learned how to deploy cybersecurity practices in a US context.
After raising money from venture capital, he moved his company to the San Francisco Bay Area. There he learned the Silicon Valley approach to innovation, including methods of problem solving and business scalability.
After a family evolution, he came back to France. He is now working to help protect major companies using innovative approaches from Silicon Valley. In his current position, as CISO for a defense company, he is in charge of the cybersecurity of critical programs moving to cloud technologies and AGILE.
