Innovation is a key component of the business formula and philosophy at Van Oord. Cyber security is in this regard no exception. Edwin Franse, CISO at Van Oord, has put in place a resilient security system based on best practices in the industry, recognized as such by both peers and certification providers.
A very important part of Van Oord’s security is the security of the hundreds of suppliers and partners that Van Oord works with. Not only could a breach at one of these companies put Van Oord’s security in jeopardy, supply chain security is also one of the focal points of recent regulatory interventions. But how can one steer away from extensive questionnaires and assessments that are time consuming and resource intensive? Edwin Franse will elaborate on this and shares his thoughts and approach
Edwin Franse, Van Oord
After finishing his studies at the TU Eindhoven, Edwin Franse started his career as a business consultant before discovering his love for cyber security at the Dutch Ministry of Defence.

In a small-scale round table setting for cybersecurity executives, Edwin takes participants through the security strategy at Van Oord, the value of digital security partnerships with supply chain partners and his lessons learned in securing his contacts as much as possible. After the presentation, there will be time for discussion and networking.

Cyber Security Executives
Damen Shipyards is a multi-national company with subsidiaries in many countries. It maintains a stellar track record when it comes to innovation. To solidify awareness into a corporate culture that values cybersecurity, the key is an approach that combines continuous incremental awareness initiatives with technological aid. But how can Damen secure its systems if it has so many decentralized facilities in different countries? And what concern wide strategy is in place to help Damen become even more secure? Hans Quivooij, CISO at Damen Shipyards will take us through the differences between securing centralized and decentralized entities within Damen. He will explain how security technology and awareness can strengthen both each other and the overall security of the company.
During this Vision Dinner, Sander will discuss how cybersecurity executives can maximise governance efficiency under strict budget constraints in an environment where regulatory and organisational pressure are increasing. The primary focus of the evening is to foster group interaction amongst participants in order to answer the fundamental question as to what kind of CISO the ongoing developments and progress in digitisation demand: a jack of all trades, or a subject matter expert? Do not miss this chance to learn from a seasoned security professional with a unique perspective, and exchange knowledge and experiences with relevant peers from the field. You are most welcome to join!
