KPN Security publishes Cyber Security Perspectives 2022

'The risk of digital disruptions is now greater than ever'

Zoetermeer, 5 April 2022 - The latest edition of Cyber Security Perspectives is available now. This annual magazine, published by KPN Security, outlines the key developments in the field of cyber security based on interviews with renowned Dutch security experts. They share their practical experiences and offer best practices for IT security.

The importance of knowledge sharing
Cyber Security Perspectives is aimed at a broad management and IT audience. The interviews cover a wide range of security issues: from SME security and critical infrastructure to red teaming and forensic data analysis. The common thread is the collective improvement of the Netherlands’ digital resilience. All the experts have worked on the magazine at no cost. They have done so out of the conviction that knowledge sharing is a crucial tool for making the Netherlands more secure.

Around twenty security experts are interviewed in the magazine, including: 

  • Irma Jepma – Director of Cybersecurity at Coöperatie VGZ
  • Donny Maasland - ESET Nederland’s CTO
  • Oscar Koeroo – Concern-CISO at the Ministry of Health, Welfare and Sport (VWS)
  • Petra Oldengarm – Director of Cyberveilig Nederland
  • Guus van Es – Cyber Risk Partner at Deloitte
  • Sabyne van Mourik – Business Development Manager at Kiwa Nederland

All the experts also participated in the security event NLSecure[ID] in January. In the magazine Cyber Security Perspectives we will elaborate on the subjects that were discussed at the time. With both initiatives, KPN Security is stimulating information exchange and cooperation between Dutch security professionals.

Making the Netherlands more digitally resilient
“As a result of the geopolitical developments, the risk of digital disruptions is now greater than ever”, says Lisette Oosterbroek, Executive Vice President at KPN Security. “Cyber attacks are becoming increasingly lucrative and more sophisticated. The enemy is well-organized, and we must be too. Every company and every employee has a responsibility in this regard. We can only protect the prosperity and innovative power of the Netherlands if we work together. And that starts with knowledge sharing.”

“With this magazine, we’re promoting knowledge sharing and contributing to the Netherlands’ digital resilience,” adds Oosterbroek. “The interviewees shed light on their field from their own perspective. Often sounding a critical note, but always based on years of experience in the security world. You can apply these insights to sharpen your own security. In this way, we can build a digitally resilient Netherlands together.”

Free for everyone
KPN Security sees it as its social duty to inform organizations about the most important developments in the area of cyber security. That’s why Cyber Security Perspectives is available free of charge to everyone. You can download the magazine here.
