About Dr. Lutz Jänicke

Lutz Jänicke has been passionate about security for a long time. Although he studied electrical engineering, he has always maintained a focus on cybersecurity. “Cybersecurity was so interesting that that’s where I looked for a job after graduation,” he told us.

Today Lutz Jänicke is Corporate Product & Solution Security Officer at Phoenix Contact.

In out interview, he talked about what customers need, what small and medium-sized companies with limited budgets can do, and what kind of network segmentation approaches are used today:

“Beyond the clear separation between OT and OT, the trend is moving toward breaking down the production network into manufacturing cell levels.”
