Koen Gijsbers, dcypher
Global Senior Executive Advisor Digital, Cyber and Innovation
Koen has over 40 years of experience working in the public sector as a military leader and senior civil executive. In the IT and cyber domain, Koen led NATO’s communications transformation towards the concept of Netcentric Operations and drove change in the NLD Ministry of Defense as CIO. Since 2017 is working cyber issue for both the public and private sector. In his current role at DCypher, a public – private collaboration platform, Koen is leading the Automated Vulnerability Research and Innovation Program, aimed at recognizing vulnerabilities in software as early as possible to increase their resilience against cyber-attacks.
While the kinetic action in the Russian and Ukrainian conflict is limited to the traditional battlefield, attacks within the cyber domain are becoming an increasing threat worldwide. Either by stealing sensitive data and threatening public exposure or crippling IT infrastructure, threats such as ransomware and wiperware put business continuity and public trust at risk. Security technology plays an important role; however, every organization is prone to cyberattacks. Focusing on prevention alone is not enough; it is also vital to have the right mechanisms in place when your organization becomes the victim of a successful cyber breach.
