The underlying objective is to create a safer and more secure bank, focussing on creating Risk Awareness, on User Access, and by helping engineers implement minimum standards and solve risk and security issues.

Since 2017, Léon is organizing Risk Awareness Days, which has grown to a cross-domain, cross-border event in which several hundreds of DevOps teams (3000+ engineers) participate.
