I know Monica as a passionate and committed technology and security leader, and have had the pleasure of working with her through her engagement with Vipps (Security Governance). She is an experienced and collaborative professional, and in my opinion, comes across as having a talent for finding synergies between technology and people. I regard her as a competent cyber security leader, especially passionate about sharing learning and good practice.

I met Monica at the Nordic IT Security conference in Stockholm. Her talk was so well received she was asked to do it twice! The subject was adaptive security. She is very passionate has a great speaking style and her content is well thought out and unique. After the conference, we debated the merits of adaptive security and how the model can be utilized in several areas. I look forward to working with her more in the future.

She's experienced, thoughtful, articulate and more importantly -- Monica is genuinely passionate InfoSec. For her, InfoSec is not just a career choice, but a personal calling. Her enthusiasm comes through in absolutely everything she does from her day-to-day work, her writing, and her public appearances. She's always eager to help when asked and incredibly determined to make a real difference. And when she has new ideas to share, I listen.
