Former German Military Counterintelligence Service member acquitted of treason charges

A German former Military Counterintelligence Service member (MAD) has been acquitted of the charge of treason. The 44-year-old military member had been accused to have warned a KSK-soldier of a raid by the attorney general as part of a right-wing extremism investigation.

The suspect himself had stated this during his interrogations and publicly. The MAD employee had now testified in court that the information had come from a leak at the Attorney General. Thereupon the public prosecutor withdrew the appeal proceedings.

I have been working in the private security industry since 2009 and switched to public transport security in 2017. In addition to this work, I am working as an expert for industry-related scientific work, as an author for security wikis and as a consultant. The development of security concepts, security standards and awareness concepts is a central theme throughout my professional career. In 2013 I completed my bachelor's degree in "Security Management" at the Berlin School of Economics and Law (HWR). In my professional activity during his studies, I specialized as a security consultant for the hotel industry and worked as a consultant for emergency management. In order to further develop my specialist knowledge, I studied at the Brandenburg University of Applied Sciences "Security Management" and graduated as a Master of Science with a focus on security awareness and building security management (security concepts). The focus of my master thesis was the profile direction "Business Continuity Management" with the development of emergency and crisis management models for public institutions. In 2017 I certified myself as "Expert for private security services" according to DIN EN ISO / IEC 17024. The English Magazine "The Professional Security Officer Magazine" described me as "one of the leading names in German security [...] with rapidly increasing international recognition" in May 2020.
