Truesec Establishes in Germany to Protect Organizations Against Cybercrime

In a time of rising geopolitical tension, the cyber threats facing German companies, organizations, and critical infrastructure have reached an all-time high. The country’s strong industry and economy make it susceptible to escalating attacks with damaging consequences. Not only are the number of attacks expected to grow in numbers, but also in complexity, severity, and the societal damage they cause. As a result of the increased demand for professional security services in the region, Truesec is therefore establishing local operations in Munich, Germany.

Our partners and clients have long requested Truesec’s local presence in Germany and the DACH region. With our track record of assignments in the region and knowledge of the increasing cyber threats facing companies and organizations, launching local operations is a natural next step, says Anna Averud, CEO of Truesec Group.

Truesec Incident Response in Germany

With more services to follow, Truesec is initially launching its Incident Response services to help organizations safely through a cyber attack with minimal impact and operational downtime. Markus Lassfolk, Global SVP for Truesecs Incident Response unit, leads the German expansion until local management is in place.

– Our goal is always to minimize downtime for clients and bring them back to operations as soon as possible. On average, it takes 23 days to restart a business after a ransomware attack. Truesec’s clients are generally back in a considerably shorter time: usually, 3-5 days, says Markus Lassfolk, Global SVP of Truesec CSIRT, and adds:

– Combining the local presence of one of Europe’s strongest Incident Response teams with our global network of cyber experts makes Truesec ideally positioned to help organizations prevent, detect, and fight cybercrime. We look forward to continuing our excellent collaboration with our regional partners and customers”

A Proven Record of Helping Victims Worldwide

Several of the larger Nordic companies and public sector actors affected by cyber attacks turn to Truesec, whose Cybersecurity Incident Response Team investigates most of the most severe incidents in Sweden and worldwide. Truesec works closely with the insurance sector, law enforcement, and security organizations worldwide and has local operations in Germany, Sweden, Denmark, Finland, and the US.
