Studio Alessandro Guarino


Founded in 2000, StudioAG is now a flexible consultancy and advisory firm specialising in Information Security, Digital Forensics, Compliance and Data Analysis. It is based in North-East Italy but with strong connections and outreach in Europe and outside. In advising our clients we adopt a technology-neutral perspective and a vendor-neutral approach.

It has extensive experience working with SMEs, as this is the largely prevalent type of business in Italy, but Public entities make up a significant slice of the client base. Big Data analysis and management is a natural complement to our services, given the explosion in data production we are witnessing, and so is privacy and data protection consultancy, as well as in Standardisation development in the ISO system and ETSI.
