ESMT researcher Martin Schallbruch receives Stanford fellowship
Martin Schallbruch, senior researcher at ESMT Berlin and deputy director of the ESMT Digital Society Institute (DSI), has been named a visiting fellowship at the Hoover Institution of Stanford University. At the American public policy think tank, Martin Schallbruch will work together with international colleagues to further develop cyber security strategies.
Martin Schallbruch joined ESMT Berlin in 2016. Before, he was a long-standing director general for information technology, digital society, and cyber security in the German Federal Ministry of the Interior. His responsibilities included the German cyber security strategy as well as the use of IT in the public sector. He is author of the books “Cybersecurity in Germany” (with Isabel Skierka) and “Schwacher Staat im Netz”.
The Digital Society Institute is an interdisciplinary research institute founded at ESMT to support the economic and social shaping of digitization through strategic research and development. With a focus on cyber security, data protection, and public-private partnerships, the institute designs effective, responsible strategies for politics and business. DSI develops innovative digital technologies for new approaches to security and digital sovereignty.
“Since cyberspace has no territorial boundaries, we have to break through geographical and political confines which hinder international collaboration,” said Martin Schallbruch. “This is a wonderful chance to do just that.”
