Published: 27 March, 2013
Knowit is strengthening its venture in IT and information security. For this reason, Åsa Schwarz has been employed as sales manager of Knowit’s specialist company in the field, Knowit Secure. Her task is to position Knowit as the leading supplier of outsourced security.
– The demand for IT and information security is growing, as the situation for all companies becoming more complex, with outsourcing, cloud services and social media. At the same time, cybercrime is becoming more organized and goal-oriented, says Åsa Schwarz.
Knowit is growing quickly in the area. In one and a half years, Knowit Secure has gone from zero to twenty-five employees. The goal is to have thirty employees by the end of the year.
– Our goal is to become the Swedish leaders in the field. Åsa will help us on the way, with her unique competence in security, marketing and sales, says Tomas Rimming, CEO at Knowit Secure.
– Knowit has already become one of the sharpest security consultants, says Åsa Schwarz. It will be fun to see what we can achieve together in the future.
Åsa Schwarz has long experience of IT security and has founded both business fields and companies in the area. She also works as a columnist for Computer Sweden and has published four works of fiction, translated into seventeen languages.
