Koen Maris
Cybersecurity Leader, PwC Luxembourg

Koen Maris

Currently active as director Cyber Security at PWC Luxembourg, transforming ideas in to new services helping customers to embed cyber security enterprise wide.

Started my IT career as a software developer. This experience provided solid background in complex environments and a basis in the roll-out of challenging IT projects. After a few years, I swapped development for ethical hacking because of a natural curiosity to flaws in systems. This was the start of a technical career in IT security, however due to rise of security problems my career evolved from ethical hacking to security solutions integration and eventually to the managerial side of security.

I've been CISO and CTO at an international IT service provider preceding my current role. Today I provide advice to large organizations in a multi-industry environment to think on a long-term basis on Cyber Security and addresses complex security topics in layman terms for board of directors and executive committees. I serve as a trusted adviser for many organizations and I'm becoming a known speaker that challenges my audience and questions current applied security models.
