Dr. Papagrigoriou, the CEO of Empelor, who has become well-known in the past decades with regard to mobile security technologies and especially as the inventor of the so-called “Merkel-Phone”, is going to move most of Empelor”s development activities to Greece, thus creating a “win-win-situation” by using the local potential of highly-skilled IT-specialists, and by contributing at the same time to putting a stop to the ongoing emigration of skilled specialists from Greece. Dr. Papagrigoriou, grown up as a child of Greek parents in Germany, expressed the opinion that “specialized professionals should not be forced to leave their country, but should be given a perspective in their own cultural context and environment”.
The choice of Iraklion on the island of Crete was not only driven by the fact that there is a local university offering courses of studies in computer science as well as one of the most renowned research centers of international reputation (FORTH) with an important institute of computer science, but also by the presence of the “European Network and Information Security Agency” (ENISA), EU”s response to cyber security issues of the European Union.
According to the head of Empelor”s branch office in Crete, Erich Leisch, the firm will be able to recruit qualified personnel for its development team locally, and to closely follow all relevant development and standardization efforts in the field of secure networking.
