Knowit founding security company in NorwayPublished 27 Aug 2014
Knowit is founding a company within IT and information security, which will have offices in Oslo and Arendal, Norway. Jorunn Terjesen will be CEO of the company, which commences operations as of September 1.
The company has already signed employment contracts with seven employees and will continue to grow organically. This establishment is one step in Knowit’s venture to become the Nordic region’s most interesting consultant in IT and information security.
– The world market for cyber security has, according to Gartner, grown by 8.6 percent in 2014. Norway is no exception and there are few consultancy firms here that can take on the role of strategic partner in the field, says Jorunn Terjesen.
– As we have very positive experiences from our operations in the security field in Sweden, it was an easy decision to expand operations into Norway and thus reuse our structural capital, says Tomas Rimming, head of the subsidiary Knowit Secure AB and chairman of Knowit Secure AS.
The Swedish subsidiary Knowit Secure AB is Sweden’s fastest growing consultancy firm in IT and information security.
Jorunn Terjesen has twenty years’ experience from the field, both as a consultant and as CEO. Most recently, she worked for Secode.
