Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy (SGRE) has appointed Alan Feeley as its new Chief Cyber Security Officer.
In addition to his current responsibilities as Chief Information Officer, he will expand and manage the company’s operational framework for cyber security.
In a press release, the company said Feeley will also consolidate all security developments in the context of the digital transformation of SGRE after the merger of Gamesa and Siemens Wind Power. In this role, Feeley will work closely with the Technology and Product Security Departments, Corporate Security and HR.
“Cyber Security vulnerabilities and threats present tangible risks and challenges to companies and to the operations they support for their customers. The complexity of this topic requires coordination and orchestration across many parts of large companies, including IT, Product Design, Security, and Data Protection, to name a few,” a SGRE spokesperson explained.
The spokesperson continued, “With the new position, Siemens Gamesa has implemented cyber security in its top management to be prepared for future challenges and to address any potential security issues both internally as well as for its customers.”
