Alex “Jay” Balan

CISO & Superbet Group


Alex “Jay” Balan is the CISO for the Superbet Group.

His forward thinking way of designing and implementing strategies for research, security and privacy resulted in policy and mindset changes (for the better and more in tone with today’s reality) across many groups and companies worldwide.

Place your bets! How we run security for the whole Superbet group and still have time to play Stray 😉

First off, this is not “another zero trust talk”! 

It’s about how we designed the security architecture in an environment with thousands of employees, multiple companies, infrastructure and services of virtually all shapes and sizes and not only keep our sanity but have time to think about innovation and research (and, of course, play Stray).
