Security Awareness

Hello and welcome!

My name is Marcus Burkert and I’m working as Manager Cyber Security at KPMG Switzerland AG.

As Manager Cyber Security, it is my passion to perform a whole variety of security assessments, such as vulnerability- and penetration tests, in order to ensure that enterprise IT environments are secured. I love to accomplish my IT security role by devising fresh and innovative new security architectures for enterprise IT environments. This allows an expression of creativity within my mandate, by improving the quest to optimize and streamline the IT security processes as well as to provide a strong value for the company’s IT security effort.

I work in environments which require lateral thinking combined with a multi-disciplinary approach; from engaging in negotiations with suppliers in the procurement and implementation process of IT security infrastructures as well as developing appropriate security processes and procedures. My professional development and career over the last 16 years within the realm of IT, is a great advantage for this.

In my current role as Manager Cyber Security, I am working on the design and implementation of innovative security architectures for enterprise IT environments, as well as on the development of adequate security policies and processes to support the IT Security effort of the clients. Concomitant to this, I am acting as IT Security Advisor and Auditor for various clients and perform risk analysis and assessments as well as the whole cornucopia of security processes and audits to underpin the security architectures - such as security assessments, vulnerability- and penetration tests as well as computer security incident response and forensic investigations.

I have a good track record of providing IT security for companies across diverse industries. My aim is to reach and/or exceed targets and to provide a strong value to each project. I would love to support you on the adventurous journey through the jungle of information security & risk management. As we all know; there is no such thing as “ghost in the machine / in the wires”.

If you’re interested, please do not hesitate to contact me. I look forward to hearing from you.
