CIO at esatus AG
Information security is my passion since the turn of the millennium and I consider myself a decentralization visionary. With business diplomas plus a doctorate from European Business School (EBS) and a computer science bachelor’s degree from James Madison University (USA), I am business-driven yet tech-savvy. Key roles in large-scale infosec projects of global regulated enterprises honed my skills. Since 2013 I am CIO of esatus AG, a digitalization company with a strong footprint in Self-Sovereign Identity (SSI), headquartered in Rhine-Main close to Frankfurt. I am a strong advocate of SSI and Simple Secure Computing, and a retro computing enthusiast. I attend to technological innovations via practical and research-driven projects, like the “Secure Platform” initiative which has spawned the joint venture “real-cis”. I am board member of TeleTrusT (IT Security Association Germany) for which I chair the “Blockchain” and “Secure Platform” working groups. Global outreach includes being a Trustee of the Sovrin Foundation, a Steering Committee member of the Trust over IP (ToIP) Foundation and co-founder of the MyData Literacy Thematic Group.
