At the beginning of 2019, Dr. Falk Herrmann took over the management of Rohde & Schwarz Cybersecurity GmbH.

During his 20-year career, the engineer, who holds a doctorate in engineering, has gained international experience in various management positions at the Bosch Group. Most recently, Herrmann was CTO of the Global Business Unit Security of Bosch Sicherheitssysteme GmbH. Within the Rohde & Schwarz Group, Herrmann reports to Ralf Koenzen, Head of the Networks and Cyber Security Division.

Following the departure of Ammar Alkassar at the turn of the year 2017/2018, the second Managing Director and CFO with equal rights, Reik Hesselbarth, took over the management of the company. Hesselbarth will leave the company at his own request in spring 2019 after the handover of the baton to Dr. Herrmann in order to devote himself to a new challenge.

The business units "Network & Endpoint Security" and "Application & Cloud Security" are at the heart of Rohde & Schwarz Cybersecurity's activities. Together with its subsidiary LANCOM Systems, the Group is pursuing its strategy of becoming the largest European provider of network and cyber security solutions.
