What is your golden rule for cyberspace? We are our own worst vulnerability but also our best antivirus.

When did you get your first computer and what kind was it? My first owned computer was an IBM PS/2 Model 30 with 640K of RAM, a hard drive of 20 MB and running in MS-DOS 4.0, although I had been fighting for years with my cousin's Spectrum and his BASIC.

Favorite computer game/activity? Apart from enjoying most of 8 and 16 bits retro games in console or PC, I'm a big fan of Civilization, XCOM and Fire Emblem sagas. I also like to install a couple of VMs in my computers to analyze the behavior of malware.
