Curriculum Vitae

Christopher Schmitz is a research and teaching assistant at the Chair of Mobile Business and Multilateral Security at Goethe University Frankfurt, Germany. He holds a joint Bachelor’s degree (B.Sc.) and a joint Master’s degree (M.Sc.), both in Computer Science and Business Administration (Wirtschaftsinformatik), from Darmstadt University of Technology, Germany. Throughout his entire studies, he worked in the Security Test Lab of the Fraunhofer Institute for Secure Information Technology (SIT) in Darmstadt where he gained experiences in various fields of information security and privacy. Thereafter, Christopher joined the m-chair research group to develop a lightweight and risk-based approach for decision support in information security.
