A ‘just-too-late’ perspective on security: Secure business strategy at Intergamma

October 6, 2022

Gijs will provide insight into his approach at Intergamma to ensure that the security of new code and infrastructure is sufficiently guaranteed, without involving an excess of tooling and processes. He will address the aspects of the organization that make the above strategy for Intergamma an adequate choice versus a secure-by-design.

  • Small scaled peer session
  • Open dialogue by means of the Chatham House Rule

Gijs Zijderveld has a broad background in cybersecurity, in which he spent five years working for Deloitte in the Cyber Risk department, among others. He now has final responsibility for cybersecurity at Intergamma. Here he always looks for the right balance between security and efficiency in the development of business strategies. In addition to this role, Gijs is also active as a volunteer in the debt assistance.



In recent years, there has been an increasing focus on DevSecOps in the cybersecurity field. The goal is to resolve as many vulnerabilities as possible before code and infrastructure are put live. But how do you keep the balance with flexibility and time-to-market? This raises questions such as: are we overdoing it in the number of tools and processes that we impose on our developers? Isn't our risk tolerance secretly greater than we assume? These kinds of questions underlie the security strategy at Intergamma, which also includes the choice of a 'just-too-late' approach.
