As Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) of the Canton Zurich, I am responsible for its cyber security strategy. Further tasks include ensuring adequate cyber security resilience in the cantonal administration, planning and carrying out security assessments and audits, raising awareness, and developing the necessary security policies. We are also establishing a cantonal center for cybersecurity, which not only supports the administration but also our critical infrastructures as well as our communes in Canton Zurich.
I hold a PhD in information security from Bristol University, UK and I have 13 years of experience in the industry: first in a technical role as a research associate, then four years in consulting, and since then in various security and risk management roles.
