Have a Break – Have a Security Centre: From DZI to CASED

If you want to be successful you must follow a vision and be able to inspire your environment. In my long shared history with Johannes Buchmann since July 1998 I learned that he is very effective in seeding a suitable idea and managing an eligible ambience to let the thought become successful reality. One prominent example is the establishment of the predecessor of CASED, the Darmstädter Zentrum für IT-Sicherheit (DZI). In this article I summarise the different steps from the idea to found a security centre in Darmstadt to the current form of CASED. Furthermore I show the significance of the pizzeria Da Nino at the beginning of this process.
