Cybersecurity Leader, PwC Luxembourg
Koen Maris is director Cyber Security at PWC Luxembourg, transforming ideas into new services helping customers to embed cyber security enterprise wide.
Koen Maris started an 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, he 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 the rise of security problems his career evolved from ethical hacking to security solutions integration and eventually to the managerial side of security.
He has been CISO and CTO at an international IT service provider preceding his current role. He advises 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.
Koen Maris serves as a trusted advisor for many organizations and is becoming a known speaker that challenges his audience and questions current applied security models.
