With a keen interest in protecting digital systems, Karina will play a crucial role in ensuring the Bank's online platforms remain secure. When she's not busy safeguarding data, Karina enjoys spending time with her two cats, Merlin and Glory, and indulging in her favorite TV show, "How to Get Away with Murder." She also finds solace in gaming on her Nintendo Switch.
