Igor Van Gemert


Igor van Gemert is a technical programme manager/boardroom consultant with a track record of over 10 years in the IT/OT cyber security domain. He is convinced that our life consists of continuous learning and unlearning. By studying and working in silicon valley he has seen at an early stage the effects that disruptive technology will have on our society. Responding adaptively to new situations requires strategic insight, but also leadership qualities that enforce results. If your organisation is not able to enforce the right cyber security measures, this can result in losing business.

The boardroom and management teams are faced with a major task to successfully complete the digital transformation. This means that the CISO permanently reports to the CEO and CFO and new tools are needed for this. By structurally applying artificial intelligence in the mitigation and visualisation of cybersecurity risks, he and his technical support staff can make the difference.
