Hello, I’m Jean-Philippe Rivard Lauzier. Thanks for taking the time to visit my website and hope you could find valuable information relevant to you. I have been on both sides of information technology, technical, and business. In my opinion, it is an advantage when working in information security and compliance. With my previous experience, I try to share what I learned and what I’m still learning every single day.


I’m currently working as a senior cyber security advisor for Hydro-Québec, a Crown corporation that manages the generation, transmission, and distribution of electricity in Quebec, Canada. I previously worked for Desjardins Group, the largest credit union in Canada, as a senior security governance advisor, the offensive security team lead, and a third-party security governance advisor. I was also an IT auditor before for Deloitte and PwC with mandates in Canada and the United States.

I hold a master of administration specialized in IT governance, audit, and security (M.Adm.) from the Université de Sherbrooke. Also, I’m a Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP), Certified Information Systems Auditor (CISA), Systems Security Certified Practitioner (SSCP), and Offensive Security Certified Professional (OSCP).


I work with different organizations as an advisor on subjects related to information security, compliance, and privacy. I mainly help small and medium organizations by simplifying these domains and explaining how they could have an impact on a business. I guide them through different processes and prioritize with them the required action plans. I want them to be more aware of possible issues and be able to react quickly to different situations. Noted that everything is done mostly by video calls and emails. So, even if I’m located in Montreal (Quebec, Canada), I could definitely help you, no matters where you are in the world.


Would you like to collaborate together? Any questions? Any subjects that you would like to read on here? The best way to reach me is still by email.
