Who is Arjen Kamphuis?
Arjen Kamphuis studied physical science at the University of Utrecht and was an employee of IBM and worked for Twynstra Gudde as an IT-architect, trainer and IT-strategy advisor. He is a certified IT-auditor and information security expert (CISA, CISM). Arjen helps out companies, public institutions and a number of national governments to develop an IT-strategy that revolves around security. In order to keep his knowledge up to date he reads a megabyte of text every day and technical specialists, researchers and (former) spies brief him regularly with the latest information. Next to his job as advisor, he trains journalists and NGO-employees in practical information security and counter surveillance so they are able to operate safely in dangerous countries. At Brunel, Arjen essentially leads a team of information security specialists who work on digital security in leading organizations in The Netherlands on operational level as well as on policy level.
