Harmen is the Managing Director of Fox-IT, the leading cybersecurity firm in the Benelux with ~500 employees and €60-70M in revenue, divided over Managed Detection Services, Consulting, Forensics & Incident Response, Red Teaming, Crypto and Banking Fraud Detection. He joined Fox-IT in January 2021 as director for the Crypto division, which develops products for the Dutch government to protect its state secrets. Mid 2022 he became COO, and mid 2023 Managing Director.

After completing his master’s in computer science at TU Delft, specializing in AI, Harmen started his career as trainee at ABN AMRO. He then worked for strategy consultancy Bain & Company from 2008 until 2014, and as associate partner had a focus on the telecoms, technology and banking sectors. Before joining Fox-IT he worked in various director roles at Royal BAM Group.



In today’s business landscape, significant cyber incidents including hacks, data breaches and ransomware have become increasingly prevalent. Consequently, the World Economic Forum has surveyed cyberattacks as the #5 risk for a material crisis on a global scale in 2024. With new regulations such as NIS2 and DORA, board members become personally liable for having the right cybersecurity measures in place. This means that just cleaning up your own house is not enough; there’s now a responsibility for the full supply chain. As a result cybersecurity has become a chefsache and cannot solely be delegated to CIOs and CISOs anymore. Now, as a board member, how do you ensure the robustness of your cybersecurity measures?

During the dinner there will be plenty opportunities for open dialogue with Harmen and the other participants.
