Head of IT Security Strategy
I have been working at Hilti since August 2015 and currently in charge of the IT security strategy project. This holistic project covers the whole organisation, including ICS, digital, application software and embedded systems. It aims at getting Hilti ready for the IT security challenges and risks it will face in the future, including those coming with opportunities such as cloud, mobility and digitalisation. The project seeks at understanding where Hilti stands from an IT security perspective, defining, using a risk-based approach, what should be protected and at which level, as well as how to protect it and with what capability requirements. Before Hilti, I was working as Sales Engineer at McAfee/Intel Security in Zurich for almost two years, driving technical relationships with key customer accounts and partners accross Switzerland. Prior to that, I was a security consultant for a German consulting company in Munich for 4 years. I have been working in the IT security field for about 8 years. I have a 7 months old little boy and live with him and his mother in Buchs, in beautiful eastern Switzerland. During my spare time I enjoy spending time with my young family, being in the mountains, doing sports like skiing and running, as well as listening to music.
