Ester Widera
Senior Consultant

“Guidelines that adhere to compliance requirements while still being practical play an increasingly important role today. The documentation requires know-how and time – in addition to their day-to-day business, this task poses a major challenge to many companies. I’m glad that I’m able to provide hands-on support with that.”

Andreas Borgwart
Managing Consultant

“In order to organize ISMS processes in companies more efficiently, I help with the introduction of suitable tools. For example, workflows for protection needs assessments and security assessments can be automated. Furthermore, I advise our customers on the topic of risk management. I enjoy finding a suitable solution even for the most complex contexts.”

Simon Weickart
Consultant

“I feel most at home where technology meets compliance. ISO 27001, BAIT, MaRisk and a growing number of new regulations present companies with ever new challenges with regard to their IT organization and documentation. My motivation is to implement these in an efficient and practical way.”

Tanja Misic
Senior Consultant

“I support companies in achieving and maintaining their ISO 27001 certification. The phases of planning, implementation, review and improvement must interlock perfectly. This is why it is always a pleasure to share with my clients the joy of being awarded for the first time or maintain a certificate.”
