“Cyber is a borderless issue, and not something that will be solved locally. That’s why I’m very excited to leave the helm of TG Norway to Maria and head up our global cyber team. We’ve had great success building our cyber business to where it is today, and I think we will be even more successful when we put our effort in building a truly global team. There’s a huge shortage of talent, and complex issues to be solved, both in privacy, security governance, cyber security in emerging tech such as AI and IoT, and more. I intend to help our clients tackle these issues, supplying them with the best expertise.
It is also a great pleasure to have talented and proven leaders such as Maria to take TG to the next level and beyond. I’ve had such a blast working with Maria over the years, and she is one of the persons that is truly living out our values. I’m excited to see what she can accomplish together with the amazing Norwegian team!”, says Carsten Maartmann-Moe.
“Our service offering in cyber security is one of our strongest and has great potential to grow further. Carsten Maartmann-Moe has solid expertise within cyber security and how companies are affected by cyber risks. Additionally, he can communicate with all parts of an organization – from technical IT staff to management and the board. With this effort, we will accelerate our growth in the area and meet the growing demand “, says Lars Reidar Vold-Andersen, CEO, Transcendent Group.
