Organizations around the world are facing an unprecedented volume of cyberattacks, and therefore the security and protection of data is more important than ever.

Nowadays, companies can no longer rely on automated tools only, but have to leave this well-established path and think outside the box.

“Our membership with the German Cyber Security Council e.V. was a logical step: Bundling and combining the knowledge and expertise from the network of the council together with our leading Pentest as a Service model to protect organizations against sophisticated attackers,” said Sven Sellen, Enterprise Account Executive of Cobalt.

The German Cyber Security Council e.V. forms a Germany-wide cybersecurity network in a European and international context and is committed to improving the IT and cybersecurity of companies and public institutions.

Since it was founded in August 2012, the association has been pursuing the goal of advising companies, authorities, and political decision-makers on cybersecurity and strengthening them in the fight against cyber crime.

The network is made up of large and medium-sized companies, operators of critical infrastructures, numerous federal states and municipalities, as well as experts and political decision-makers related to the topic of cybersecurity.

Cobalt modernizes pentesting for security and development teams with a novel Pentest as a Service (PtaaS) solution. By combining a SaaS platform with an exclusive community of testers, Cobalt delivers the real-time insights organizations need to remediate risk quickly and innovate securely.

“The creativity and skills of humans who can understand the thoughts and actions of sophisticated attackers, and who can identify vulnerabilities at a speed that matches even the most aggressive development timetables,” said Jacob Hansen, co-founder and CEO of Cobalt, is one of the biggest values on how Cobalt’s PtaaS enables customers to move from static pentests to platform-driven pentest programs.

Hans-Wilhelm Dünn, president of the German Cyber Security Council, also sees the value Cobalt provides in keeping organizations secure.

“I’m thrilled that we have a global organization like Cobalt joining the German Cybersecurity Council e.V. Cobalt understands the people and processes behind cyberattacks and together we can achieve our goal of strengthening all members in the fight against cyber crime.”
