The Team

Ivana Vojinovic

Ivana Vojinovic

Editor-in-chief

Ever since she played her first game of Super Mario back in the 90s, Ivana was hooked on tech. Years later, she started her career working for a company that sells EU GDPR documentation. This job has thought her the importance of proper data collection, storage, and handling. Soon she realized that dealing with customer information was something many companies found challenging and that many individuals are ignorant about the amount of data they leave online. This inspired here to launch DataProt – a website that educates people on internet privacy and gives cybersecurity advice. She firmly believes that with the right tools and knowledge, anyone can enjoy the benefits of the internet without endangering their privacy.

Ivan Stevanovic

Writer

Ivan’s character can be summed up in two traits – a pedantic stubbornness and an insatiable love for music. Naturally, he wouldn’t let the mere fact that his home country is geo-blocked from certain music streaming platforms interfere with his never-ending quest for new artists. The endeavour of researching the tools of hiding his identity also made him an online privacy enthusiast. His contribution to DataProt are his in-depth, meticulous, and critical reviews of cyber-security products.

If there were a way to inject internet straight into one’s bloodstream, ones and zeros would course through Bojan’s veins. Bojan eats, lives, and breathes online both professionally as a cybersecurity reporter and privately as an avid gamer. Bojan learned the dangers of malicious online agents the hard way. He fell victim to a ransomware attack that corrupted years’ worth of research data. The jolting experience made him realize that even the most experienced individuals can fall prey to criminals, if they forgo the basic tenets of online safety. He joined the DataProt team to inform the uninformed and help them avoid the mistakes that cost him a whole lot of stress.
