In this role, he maintains governance and leads a global organization with InfoSec contact persons at all OSRAM locations, also oversees all technical security operations of the company (firewall, virus protection, application security).
OSRAM addresses Information Security threats not only in the technical area, so great emphasis is placed on training and awareness for years. In particular, with global awareness tests significant success has been achieved that pay off in the regular defense of partially highly complex social engineering attacks.
Since OSRAM is following a “Cloud first” approach, current focus is on cloud security, zero trust concepts and document centric approaches, e.g. Digital Rights Management based protection.
For optimal integration of Information Security into the application landscape of the company Mr. Siguda also works as a Data Protection Officer of OSRAM GmbH on one hand and as security responsible on the other hand.
