My Recent Accomplishments:

Setup a hybrid security operations center for our organisation in vital infrastructure. Participated in the creation of Dutch standards for smart metering. Helped the EU to setup a framework for cybersecurity around smart metering infrastructures. 

What would not have been possible without CEH?​

I got certified in advanced penetration testing and exploit writing which I consider the crown jewel on my certification path. I don’t think I would have chosen to pursue this path without CEH.

How did CEH contribute to your career?​​

CEH has brought me an excellent starting point to further educate and certify in cybersecurity skills, and it helped me use structured methodologies in my work where before I was used to doing such things in an ad-hoc fashion.

During the pandemic, did your role become more challenging? If so, how?​

At the start of the outbreak, our company had to facilitate working from home for thousands of employees, and we were also in the midst of a transition from an on-prem- to a cloud-based infrastructure.
