DCSO was founded by the German economy for the German and European economies in response to the global threat of organized cybercrime and industrial espionage. We offer companies a protected, fully neutral, and trustworthy environment for cooperation and the exchange of views. Under our roof, companies are able to exchange information about cybersecurity threats not only with each other but also with national authorities and research institutes and formulate effective strategies and solutions for prevention, defense, and response.
Our Mission: Engineering Security Together
DCSO was collectively founded by our shareholders, Allianz SE, BASF SE, Bayer AG, and Volkswagen AG, at the end of 2015. We are based in Berlin and currently employ around 110 people. Knowing that it will soon be impossible to efficiently respond to well-equipped hackers alone, the CIOs of our founding partners committed accordingly to a close working relationship. To that end, we bundle information, knowledge, best practices, and operational clout together from top German companies and make this available to all DCSO participants. This principle, which we call 'Collaborative Managed Security Services', ensures that the security level of all parties involved is at the level of the best-protected company.
The DCSO portfolio includes a range of Managed Security Services, as well as Assessment and Consulting services, along the entire Security Incident Response lifecycle:
Threat Detection & Hunting
Technology Scouting & Evaluation
Strategic Threat Intelligence
Technical Threat Intelligence
Internet Exposure Monitoring
Service & Enterprise Assessment
Consulting & Projects
We are the leading enabler of community-driven cyber defense.
