Kirsten Heitmann

Team Leader Security Solutions
Kirsten Heitmann – After training and a brief spell as an IT management assistant, I studied bioinformatics before working for four years as an ethical hacker. In this time I learned how hackers in a variety of areas (web apps, perimeter, internal networks, social engineering, etc.) think and operate. I made the move to Bechtle in July 2015, continuing my work as an ethical hacker in the fields of network and security at the Rhein-Main systems integrator. My focus switched to the defender which enabled me to deepen my knowledge in the areas of Privileged Access Management (PAM), Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) and Vulnerability Management. Due to my knowledge of ethical hacking, I’ve been able to advise my customers according to their specific situation. In June 2018, I took on the role of Head of Security Solutions at Bechtle Rhein-Main.
