Dr. André Kudra


esatus AG

Information security is my passion since early 2000s and I consider myself a decentralization visionary. With business diplomas plus a doctorate from European Business School (EBS) and a computer science bachelor's degree from James Madison University (USA), I am business-driven yet tech-savvy. Key roles in large-scale infosec projects of global regulated enterprises honed my skills. I attend to technological innovations via practical and research-driven projects which I present at conferences and with publications. Since 2013 I am CIO of esatus AG, a consultancy specialized in infosec, headquartered in Rhine-Main close to Frankfurt. esatus is a Sovrin Founding Steward, operating a node, and a MyData member with MyData Operator status for its IAM suite “SeLF”. I am a strong advocate of Self-Sovereign Identity (SSI) and a Sovrin Board of Trustees member. I chair TeleTrusT’s (IT Security Association Germany) “Blockchain” and “Secure Platform” working groups and contribute to the Blockchain Identity standardization efforts of ISO/TC 307 via DIN (Deutsches Institut für Normung).
