Giesecke+Devrient – Creating Confidence
Giesecke+Devrient is a global company that offers security technologies, both in the physical and digital spheres. Every day, billions of people benefit from G+D innovations in their personal, digital and business lives. With around 11,600 employees across 32 countries, the corporate group develops, manufactures, and distributes products and solutions for the safeguarding of payment processes, identities, connectivity, and data.
It all began in 1852, when the printing of securities started in Leipzig. Today, the Giesecke+Devrient portfolio is as diverse as modern, mobile life. Anyone who pays by cash, card, or smartphone is highly likely to be using technologies from G+D – which, with their many online functions, are also used in the latest generation of motor vehicles. However, they are also put to use in fast, secure border controls. Advanced identity documents and control systems from G+D protect state territories and corporate buildings alike.
In addition, cybersecurity solutions contribute to making the advancing digitalization and networking of our life more convenient, while ensuring the standard of security stays as high as possible. There is one common goal behind all of these facets of G+D: Creating Confidence. In order to make this even more successful in all areas, the Group has comprised four business sectors since 2017: G+D Currency Technology, G+D Mobile Security, Veridos (a joint venture with Bundesdruckerei), and secunet, which is listed.
