A Bavarian security boutique for international customers

Competent, likeable, professional, pragmatic

Our mission - What motivates us

We are convinced that the assets and values of our society must also be protected in cyber space. That's why we help organizations to protect themselves with the right mix of technologies, processes and people.

This means concretely:

  • We make the individual risks and threats tangible and understandable (Identify)
  • We increase resilience to cyber attacks through targeted measures (Protect)
  • We develop concepts to detect cyber attacks quickly (Detect)
  • We limit the damage of cyber attacks through good preparation and professional response (Respond)
  • We help companies to quickly become operational again after an attack (Recover)

In all of this, we follow the approach of transferring successful cyber security strategies from corporations with a sense of proportion and pragmatism for medium-sized businesses, through high-quality best practices and standards.

HvS-Consulting to the point

Kompetent Sympathisch
Competent and likeable
Competent - Efficient - Pragmatic - Likeable: these are the attributes our customers mention when being asked why they have chosen HvS. And we can identify with this 100%. Thinking strategically and acting pragmatically is our success formula.
Hilfe Zur Selbsthilfe
Help for self-help
Our philosophy: we not only consult, we coach. We act as sparring partners and experts, but we want to share our know-how. With 40 people, we are far too small to spend hundreds of man-days on a project; we have no interest in doing so.

What we do, we do right! We are among the best incident responders in Germany, our security awareness campaigns won awards, our social engineering sometimes scares us ourselves. We are never the cheapest, but always worth the price.

The H and the vS

Michael Hochenrieder is the strategic thinking computer scientist, the ISO-27000 lead auditor, incident response coordinator, PowerPoint forensic expert. And a dreaded social engineer. He is responsible for all technical topics and the ISMS area.

Frank v. Stetten is the very IT-savvy business economist, the marketing enthusiast, awareness Jedi and product manager. He is the intellectual father of IS-FOX e-learning and videos and is responsible for security awareness, our IS-FOX product brand and our internal commercial issues.

But we become HvS only through our excellent teams, with such diverse skills like hacking, multimedia design, software development, digital forensics, video production, communication, auditing. They are the ones who make HvS possible.
