  • Proven expertise in managing mission-critical systems, with the ability to effectively identify and mitigate risks. Knowledge of IT/OT security standards and regulations such as ISO 27k, IEC 62443, and NIS2.
  • Excellent command of both English and Dutch, in speaking and writing. Up-to-date knowledge of the latest trends and developments in both OT and IT.
