Our Experts

Stephan Neumann
Head of usd HeroLab, Member of usd HeroLab Steering Circle

“more security” is a really broad field. On the one hand, the HeroLab provides more security by running pentests on IT infrastructures and applications. On the other hand, we share our knowledge with our customers and the community in training courses so they can avoid potential vulnerabilities in the first place.“

Matthias Göhring
Head of usd HeroLab, Member of usd HeroLab Steering Circle

“We protect companies against hackers and criminals by identifying vulnerabilities before others do. With our technical security analyses - above all pentests - we bear a high level of responsibility. We can only live up to this responsibility by investing in excellent training and further education for our analysts as well as in standardization and automation with our pentesting toolchain. A team is more than the sum of its parts - that's why I'm proud of usd HeroLab.”

Ca Way Le
Managing Consultant, Member of usd HeroLab Steering Circle

“A pentest is just the beginning of any IT Security project. In order to provide our customers with the best possible support, we rely on excellent technical skills as well as our strong consulting competencies. To win more experts for the mission we fight for every day, we put a lot of effort in our internal training program. Every day I enjoy seeing how each member contributes to our team with their individual strengths and new ideas.”

Konstantin Samuel
Managing Consultant, Member of usd HeroLab Steering Circle

“Our broad pentest portfolio enables us to conduct security analyses in a tailored and comprehensive manner. In doing so, we place high professional demands on ourselves and our work and always keep track of current vulnerabilities and attack vectors. A trusting and individual relationship with our customers is important to us - just as it is within our team.”

Caroline Trusheim
Head of usd Pentest Service Management, Member of usd HeroLab Steering Circle

“Technical security analyses are highly individual projects that can quickly become a complex challenge. This is where we as Pentest Service Management step in: Combining simple processes with the collective expertise of HeroLab, we support our customers efficiently in planning, organizing and following up on their security analyses. For a positive customer experience on the way to more security.”

Tim Kranz
Managing Consultant, Member of usd HeroLab Steering Circle

“We are constantly developing our range of services so that we can also respond optimally to very specific requirements of our customers. I am committed to implementing the wishes of our customers as precisely as possible. In order to maintain a constantly high quality, I see myself as connection between customer requirements and the development of our usd toolchain.”

Daniel Heyne
usd Team Lead Sales, Managing Consultant, Member of usd HeroLab Steering Circle

“We provide a broad portfolio of excellent solutions in the context of our mission "more security". However, it is sometimes not easy for our customers to figure out what will bring them the greatest added value in a specific situation. This is where we kick in from a sales perspective and provide advice at the highest professional level even before the actual order is placed - because this is the best way we can lay the foundation for successful projects.”

Markus Ritter
Managing Consultant, Member of usd HeroLab Steering Circle

“No single expert can satisfy the complex requirements of our clients alone. We can only achieve good results for our clients and keep improving as HeroLab and as usd if we truly come together and work as a team.”
