As Global Cyber Security Delivery Manager, Petr Kocmich help fulfil Soitrons vision for cybersecurity

A significant increase in sophisticated and devastating attacks proves that corporate cyber protection must change. This is why Soitrons security team was recently strengthened with the arrival of Petr Kocmich. 

His strategic role as Global Cyber Security Delivery Manager is to develop, connect, and systematically leverage Soitrons security teams in all seven countries where the company operates. An experienced and respected security expert, Petr Kocmich arrived at Soitron from Anect, where he had worked as a senior security architect and business consultant for the previous four years. He had previously gathered experience for ten years at BlueLink International (Air France KLM Group). Combined with years of experience on the supplier side, Kocmichs experience in the enterprise environment has helped him gain a deeper understanding of internal and external customers and how to meet their requirements. In his career, he has worked in technical and managerial positions: service desk coordinator, ICT system and telco administrator, ITOPS team leader, security workstream manager, group IT security manager, and senior security architect. He has been working in cyber security for eleven years and in IT for nineteen years. He graduated from the Czech Technical University in Prague with a major in telecommunications and data networks. In his leisure time he loves to travel and study. Besides modern technologies, his hobby is also cars.

Virtual teams and competence sharing

Kocmich is part of a newly created department that brings together and develops security teams from seven countries across the Soitron Group to help reduce and prevent the impact of cyberattacks in enterprises.

One of his visions is to bring together the security teams in individual countries to form virtual teams. The Soitron Group will thus be able to benefit from shared competences and combined global experience with specific concepts and technologies. It will be able to optimize cybersecurity capacity management across the group.

With combined international competence, we want to offer our customers more relevant services and state-of-the-art solutions. We are helping customers build their businesses and make it safer, more stable, and more profitable, further cementing our position as a system and security integrator, says Kocmich.

A superior security portfolio

An integral part of providing relevant security services and solutions is the constant mapping and testing of security technologies in the market, allowing Soitron to select the best ones for its portfolio.

This necessarily includes activities related to compiling and maintaining an ideal security portfolio as well as the establishment of strong new regional relationships with vendors and distributors, adds Kocmich.

Soitron as a business partner

I think that firstly we need to understand the business of our customers and thus become primarily their business partners. Only then can we start talking about concepts, architecture, and ultimately specific technologies, adds Kocmich.

Global Cyber Security Delivery Manager

This position has one more very important interpersonal and communication task. It is an effort to nurture and develop interpersonal and team relationships, clean communication channels, and generally contribute to problem-free operations. In an international team, this task is all the more important because we work in a multicultural environment. My task is to identify and address small mishaps before they grow into difficult problems, adds Kocmich.

Our newly defined vision leads to stronger protection against cyber threats and the flexible use of existing security competences within the Soitron Group. Security is our priority, and we are ready to invest in it. We are very happy to have acquired such an important reinforcement as Petr Kocmich, who will expand our team and bring his valuable experience, says Ondrej Smolár, the CEO of the Soitron Group.
