The new Head of CyberSecurity Consulting Austria Amir Salkic is looking forward to his task and would also like to contribute his many years of experience in the field of information security management: "There is a lot to do - for years, a clear trend has been emerging in the field of cybersecurity: the threat situation is changing more and more rapidly, the number of attacks is increasing and, at the same time, the number of attack vectors is rising drastically due to increasing networking. Keeping an eye on the market, anticipating the numerous threat scenarios - such as those arising from the increased integration of OT devices into the overall IT network and cloud applications - and at the same time reconciling national and international activities is a thoroughly complex area of responsibility, but I'm looking forward to taking on this challenge."
