  • "Working with Ákos is one of the most enlightening and eye opening experience I have ever had. His broad spectrum of knowledge and work ethics is unique. I would recommend him as a colleague or a contractor to anyone working in IT Sec any day." (DevOps professional)
  • "Ákos worked with my team as an external advisor for about a month and helped us to develop custom techniques suitable for our special needs. He is a highly skilled professional and a great advisor too who has a deep, practical knowledge in various fields of IT security and cybersecurity thanks to his enthusiasm for learning new things day-by-day. His approach to different kinds of problems is often unique compared to others so he can be a valuable member of any business community. He also has the ability to give down to earth advices while his ideas are still fit to the wider theoretical / conceptual framework of the project. I would definitely recommend him. " (PhD candidate)

  • "Bevallom, első körben nem könnyű felvenni Ákos gondolatmenetének ritmusát. A-ról beszél, de közben már D-n agyal, időbe telik, mire számomra is kikristályosodnak az ötletei, akkor viszont hatalmasat ütnek. Olyan aspektusokból képes vizsgálni sokszor triviálisnak tűnő dolgokat, melyre kevesen gondolnánk, ezáltal mindig tud valami újat, formabontót javasolni. Szívesen dolgoztam és fogok is vele dolgozni a jövőben, ha az OSINT nagymesterét keresed, ne habozz, ő a te embered!" (online marketing expert)
  • "Gratula: a cikket value proposition szempontból egyedülállónak tartom a magyar piacon: egyrészt szépen kidolgozott alkotás, másrészt merész szakmaisággal támasztja alá a kijelentéseit.

Gratula érte"" (reader, Business Developement Manager)
