Bert Voorbraak

Director of IT Management and Development

"Bert Voorbraak is an IT, data, and security professional with a long history of service in the government. Bert began his career at Philips and then moved on to the Tax and Customs Administration. After a brief stint in the private sector, he became the CIO at the University of Amsterdam (and the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences, HvA). Currently, Bert has been working for the Land Registry in his current role for 2 1/2 years.



Due to the escalation of geopolitical tensions, such as those between Ukraine and Russia, security has become a major priority. The Land Registry also suspected that it was becoming an increasingly clear target for cyberattacks. This development coincided with an ongoing transition to a more data-driven way of working, which has led to an increasingly important role for cybersecurity at the Land Registry. Privacy, security, and continuity are now even considered the highest priorities in the multi-year plan.
