TrustBuilder appoints cybersecurity veteran Carlo Schupp as Chief Technology Officer. Carlo Schupp has a history at Ubizen, Scaled Access and Deloitte. As CTO, he will help define TrustBuilder’s product strategy and evangelize, both internally and externally, best practices on cybersecurity in a SaaS model.
Carlo Schupp has a wealth of experience in security. At the beginning of this century, at the Belgian security scale-up Ubizen, he built one of the first SaaS platforms in the world to analyze security events and detect attacks. At Deloitte, he was European practice leader for security and privacy, where IAM was one of the main themes. He later founded Scaled Access – also specializing in IAM – which was recently sold to OneWelcome.
As CTO at TrustBuilder, Carlo Schupp is jointly responsible for defining and implementing the technical strategy. One of the main priorities at TrustBuilder is the further evolution towards a services-driven, multi-tenant SaaS platform that can serve as a backbone for further integration of own developments, partnerships with other vendors and acquisitions. “Other shifts we are implementing at TrustBuilder are policy-driven and event-driven working, which give much more flexibility for our customers, and also makes them more resilient,” says Schupp.
Growing scale-ups is in Carlo Schupp’s genes. “I think it’s very important that European companies can play a role in the cybersecurity market,” said Schupp. “American companies do not adapt enough to the specific needs of the European market. That’s why we need to counterbalance with European software companies. ” Schupp’s expertise will also come in handy in realizing the ‘buy & build’ strategy of inWebo Group, the umbrella to which TrustBuilder belongs.
“We had been working with Carlo for a while on specific projects. I am pleased that we can now call on his expertise full time,” said TrustBuilder CEO Frank Hamerlinck. “Carlo has a very strong vision and will play a key role in accelerating our growth.”
“TrustBuilder has a unique culture of collaboration and commitment, which I completely identify with,” said Schupp, who prefers to spend his free time with music (keyboards), photography, video and fast-paced sports.
