For more than 15 years, I have been advising clients from all industries on all topics related to cyber security and IT compliance.

I am particularly specialized in the development and implementation of Information Security Management Systems (ISMS), the execution of Information Security Culture Programs and the implementation of IT or OT Security Management Frameworks. In this way, I and my highly motivated team of specialists help companies strengthen their digital protection, mitigate risks and achieve compliance with industry regulations.

Already during my law studies I found my way into information security, which is still my professional home today. I have many years of experience in information security consulting and have been able to manage numerous large and challenging cyber security projects around the world and lead them to success. My clients include ‘hidden champions’, large government organizations as well as large multinational corporations.

It is particularly important to me to combine the technical with the organizational and legal aspects and, together with my highly motivated team, to be able to provide my customers with comprehensive advice in the field of cyber security.
