Luís Miguel Martins Teixeira
Cyber Security Specialist at Vestas
I’m Luís Teixeira, Electronics and Computer Engineer, I have been working for 12 years in the areas of Information Technologies, I’ve been in the automotive industry where acted as IT System Administrator/Cybersecurity Engineer, during that time I had the opportunity to design and develop some tools to help Production and Engineering departments on the extreme demand challenges that automotive industry usually has.
I’ve joined Vestas 4 years ago as a Cybersecurity Engineer, and it was for me a huge step in my career, I’ve always wanted to work on in a huge company that could create a positive environmental impact which could be visible in the entire world.
I’m on a Research and Development Department surrounded by extremely talented people that constantly promotes exchange of new ideas and potential solutions to solve business needs.
It is really fascinating being able to work with Industrial control systems, Operational technology (including IT) and introduce Security on top of it. I’ve been involved in several projects, and it’s really great to have new challenges like this. It is quite rewarding being aware that we are developing a piece of component that will be part of a big product that ultimately will make our world more sustainable.
As personal hobbies, I really like photography, practicing CrossFit and spending time with my family.
