Compass Security opens Toronto office

After establishing its first foreign branch office in Berlin in 2013, Compass Security is now opening its first North American subsidiary in Toronto.

As part of its international expansion, Compass Security is further extending its cybersecurity and Hacking Lab capabilities. After careful evaluation, we decided to establish a subsidiary in Canada's largest and economically most important metropolis.

Toronto is one of the strongest-growing cities in Canada. It has excellent educational institutions; the University of Toronto and the University of Waterloo. We will benefit from the high development potential of the city, a renowned centre for education, research and innovation that attracts both highly qualified employees and companies while also offering optimal conditions for the continued growth of Compass Security.

Beat Guldimann takes over management

We are most fortunate to have Beat Guldimann in the position of Managing Director. Beat conceived and implemented the foundation and start-up phase of the new office. He has been Managing Director of the new Compass Security (Canada) Network Computing Inc. since 1 February 2019, and is now preparing the market entry.


Ivan Bütler and Walter Sprenger are delighted, "The Swiss-Canadian Chamber of Commerce put us in touch with Beat Guldimann, and after the initial discussions, we quickly realised that he was a great fit". Compass Security is sure that it has found the right person to launch the company in Toronto. "He has an excellent business network and knows the Canadian market very well. We're very happy to have Beat on the team".

The current focus lies on the recruitment of trained penetration testers, the establishment and development of business contacts, and the execution of the first assignments.

SecTor - Bringing experts together

SecTor (Security Education Confrence Toronto) is Canada's leading IT security conference. From 7 to 10 October 2019, experts from all over the world will come together to present the latest research results and techniques in the field of IT security. It's a must for every IT professional.

Compass Security will be on site as the Bronze Sponsor. We will be presenting our penetration test services and our "Hacking-Lab" Cyber Security Academy platform at SecTor. We are looking forward to welcoming many visitors to our stand and are sure there will be some exciting discussions.
