Steffen Minkmar
Head, IT Security, European Investment Bank

Steffen Minkmar

Head of IT Security of the European Investment Bank (EIB), the biggest multilateral financial institution in the world and one of the largest providers of climate finance.
Close to 20 years of experience in the areas of IT security, risk management, and IT governance. I started my career in IT audit and security consultancy with PricewaterhouseCoopers in Germany and later in Hong Kong. Following this, I entered the fascinating world of multilateral development banks, where I assumed different roles such as the head of information security at the Asian Development Bank in Manila (Philippines) and IT compliance supervisor at the World Bank in Washington, DC.
My unique exposure to all three lines of defense allows me to look at cybersecurity and resilience from different perspectives. I am also the EIB representative to the Steering Board of the Computer Emergency Response Team for the EU institutions, bodies, and agencies (CERT-EU) and represent the Bank in IT Security related sub-committees of the EU institutions.
