Biography

Arthur has over 20 years of experience in the field of information and cybersecurity. He comes from a technical background, having studied electrical engineering at Delft University, and applied those technical skills to help organizations connect safely to the internet in the early 90s. There was no real security practices back then and securing your internet meant scanning for active services and trying to get in.

During that period, Arthur founded one of the first security companies in the Netherlands and performed a lot of security scanning and consulting for a number of national and
international customers. Due to personal reasons he had to let go of the company in the early 2000s and since then he has been operating as an independent consultant.

Although his heart is with the technology, Arthur realized that you need people and processes to be able to maintain and improve your information and cybersecurity, therefore he has expanded his skills by getting certified against ISO/IEC 27001, ISO 31000, and other security standards.

Because of his expertise in both the technical and non-technical field, Arthur is capable of balancing these two to provide organizations with the best mix that provides sufficient
assurance.
