Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy 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 and will consolidate all security developments in the context of the digital transformation of SGRE after the merger of Gamesa and Siemens Wind Power.

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.

Siemens Gamesa helps its customers to take advantage of technology advancements while simultaneously minimizing exposure to risk. An optimal security solution can only be implemented if it is continuously adapted to new threats.
