Our disruptive approach to security awareness

Our vision is to strengthen self-defense in a digital and connected world. By putting people first and inventing impactful products, we help our customers sustainably manage their human risk.

Powered by behavioral science

Checking compliance boxes is important. But there is more to it: In order to close the largest gap in security – the human layer – and effectively reduce risks, we employ modern psychological techniques that drive behavioral change.

Putting people first

If it’s fun, it works. We believe that engagement is the north star when scaling security cultures. That’s why we are laser-focused on building a product that users love!

Taking the customer’s view

Security professionals are very busy individuals nowadays. We are listening to our customers and are constantly developing our platform further to deliver unparalleled impact at low effort.


Meet our founders

Founded by a psychologist, a management consultant, and a software developer, we are used to approaching problems from multiple angles – blending a people- and technology-based focus.

Niklas Hellemann, PhD - Founder

Chief Executive Officer (CEO)

Niklas Hellemann, PhD

As a trained psychologist, Niklas is a true social engineering expert and determined to put security awareness on the right track. At SoSafe, he brings together years of experience as a management consultant at Boston Consulting Group and his background in psychology by empowering people to defend themselves against the tactics modern cybercriminals use to get into our minds. When time allows, Niklas loves to travel – or pay Hawaii a visit where he lived for several years.

Felix Schürholz - Founder

Chief Technology Officer (CTO)

Felix Schürholz

Felix is the developer and tech enthusiast in the founders team. As such, he knows all too well how difficult it can be for employees to identify and prevent sophisticated fraud scams. He is now driving and coordinating the further development of the SoSafe platform to bring awareness to information security and make the Internet a safer place for everyone. Occasionally, Felix will switch his keyboard with a mixer, and live out his passion for music as a DJ.

Lukas Schaefer - Founder

Chief Operating Officer (COO)

Lukas Schaefer

With a strong background in business economics and over five years of experience as a consultant at McKinsey, Lukas brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise in entrepreneurship, partnership building, and scaling organizations. He is now committed to help employees avert online threats, all while steering SoSafe towards becoming a globally competitive SaaS organization. As a proud father of two, his free time is usually spent with his children.
