Thomas BrandstetterThomas Brandstetter


Thomas Brandstetter is CEO and co-founder of Limes Security, a company specializing in industrial cyber security and secure software development, based in Austria. Besides his work as a CEO, he is an associate professor at the University of Applied Sciences St. Poelten, Austria, where he loves to teach his students subjects like industrial cyber security, incident response, botnets and honeypots and penetration testing. He gathered a decade of experience in the industry when he joined Siemens in order to build up the topic of IT security in products. After spending years in pen-testing significant amounts of industrial products, he became Program Manager of the "Hack-Proof-Products Program" that he had co-founded. He held this position until in 2010 the Stuxnet malware hit. He was assigned the official incident manager role for this unique threat, and still loves to look back on what he learnt back then technically and about handling security in large organizations. Out of the remnants of the Stuxnet-activities, Thomas founded the Siemens ProductCERT, which is still one of the most effective industrial incident and vulnerability response teams worldwide today. He was heading the Siemens ProductCERT for another two years before he left for his own company and academia. Thomas was on stage at security conferences like Blackhat and SANS SCADA, and spoke at conferences like Meridian, IFIP WG11.10 CIIP and CIRED. Besides speaker engagements, he also likes to actively contribute to security-conferences. His last activities included helping to establish the ICS village at DEFCON and BruCON and he also is a conference chair for the industrial control system cyber security research (ICS-CSR) academic conference series. He is a GICSP, CISSP and holds a diploma degree in IT security from the University of Applied Sciences Hagenberg, Austria and a master's degree in business administration from the Universities of Augsburg and Pittsburgh.
