I am a self-employed independent consultant. Prior to that I was working for PricewaterhouseCoopers 'Advisory Services' in Belgium as a Director, specialised in ICT Security and Performance.
I joined the firm in January 1989 as a Consultant and retired in June 2019.
Over time, I specialised in the field of security, both from the
technical and from the organisational/management perspective. I performed specialised in-depth reviews, assisted clients with the selection
of solutions, and performed implementations. Areas I worked in include authorisations and access control, biometric recognition, network security, PKI, smartcards,
as well as information security organisation legislation and policies, standards and guidelines.
Prior to PwC I was with Esso, where I worked for two years as a Systems Programmer on IBM mainframes, and two years as a Technical Analyst in the Breda Headquarters. I moved to Esso after a stay of approximately 4 years with Bell Telephone Manufacturing Company, where I developed and delivered training courses on all aspects of digital telephony. Initially after my first graduation I joined Texas Instruments as Internal Sales Engineer in their Brussels semiconductor department for 18 months.
I was born in Antwerp, Belgium. I obtained degrees from Technicum North Antwerp (Antwerp, Belgium - 1980), Brussels Free University (VUB, Brussels, Belgium, 1984) and Royal Holloway, University Of London, UK, 2002. See also the graduation list. I hold CISA (1993), CISM (2004) and CGEIT (2008) certifications from ISACA. Since 2006 I'm also accredited "Lead Auditor" for ISO/IEC 27001 assignments.
