    Head of usd HeroLab

    “It’s our goal to make the digital world safer. Our passion for hacking, together with our commitment to maintain highest quality standards, make us the best in what we do. Our work goes far beyond standard analysis services. Each one of our team members has the hunting instinct, technical expertise and resilience required to find even the most hidden vulnerabilities.”

  • Stephan Neumann
    Managing Consultant, 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.“

  • Eva Willnecker
    Managing Consultant, Member of usd HeroLab Steering Circle

    “As the Pentest Service Management, we schedule highly complex technical security analyses and assist our clients in implementing a tool-based asset and vulnerability management. We accompany our clients towards more security – with simple processes, the collective expertise of the HeroLab and a focus on their business needs.”

  • Sebastian Puttkammer
    Managing Consultant, Member of usd HeroLab Steering Circle

    “Source code is the basic building block of all applications. As security vulnerabilities can be particularly dangerous here, we continuously invest in the improvement of our code reviews and the tools we use for identifying these vulnerabilities.”

  • 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.”

  • Stefan Schmer
    Managing Consultant, Member of usd HeroLab Steering Circle

    “Our society is more dependent on IT systems than ever before. My team and I strive to make a recognizable contribution to more IT security. That’s why we point out security vulnerabilities to software manufacturers. With our bug bounty programs, our clients put their IT security to the test so they can continuously improve it.”

  • Matthias Göhring
    Managing Consultant, Member of usd HeroLab Steering Circle

    “A team is greater than the sum of its parts! That’s why I’m committed to recruiting and training new colleagues. The usd PentestLab, our CTF platform, plays a major part in this. The PentestLab is our foundation not only for internal training but also for the events we host, such as our Hacking Nights and a range of academic training courses.”
