Each month KPN organizes a Guest Hacker Program. For this program KPN’s Chief Information Security Office (CISO) invites prominent experts from the security industry to tell their story. In the past, Phil Zimmermann, Martin Roesch, Mikko Hyponnen and Karsten Nohl have spoken here. Feel free to join if it interests you!

This Guest Hacker Program will take place on 26 March and we have invited Edwin van Andel. Edwin van Andel started hacking at the age of 13. Since then, he specialized in ethical hacking, cyber security, Internet of Things awareness and social engineering. Edwin will give a presentation about one of these topics during the Guest Hacker Program. Which one? That will be a suprise.

Edwin van Andel was born on a late November day in the excellent wine year 1970 and immediately started pushing buttons from his crib. During his early years no device was safe for him, and his adolescence was described by his neighbors as a "very disastrous period", mainly because of his discovery of computers, modems and the hack-tic.

After working with different companies around the globe, he in 2003 started his own company called Yafsec, with the sole purpose of guiding companies and IT dealers through the dark woods of the ever evolving security forest. As of 2016 he joined Qbit Cyber Security and Zerocopter, where he's mostly working on publicly expanding their continuous security platform. In 2017 he became CEO of Zerocopter.

Elected winner of the Lightning talks at BruCON 2013, and organizer of the alternative NCSC conference "because no hackers were invited" #ALT-S, he is now a renowned speaker that will introduce you -in a humorous way- to the dangers, virtues and current state of affairs in the security landscape.

Do the topics ethical hacking, cyber security, Internet of Things awareness and social engineering appeal to you? You are at the right place then. Edwin will give a presentation on one of these subjects. Read below about the registration and the practical information.
