Marnix works at ENISA, the European Union Agency for Cybersecurity, where he is the Head of Sector for Network and Information Systems, leading a team which supports the European Commission and the EU’s national cybersecurity authorities with implementing the NIS Directive across the bloc. Our goal is to improve the level of cybersecurity and resilience in the EU’s critical sectors and we cover technical issues (e.g. SS7 security, BGP security, security of remote ID proofing), strategic issues (e.g. the EU’s 5G toolbox, supply chain security), as well as policy implementation (e.g. the NIS2 proposal, the EU wallet toolbox).
Marnix has a Ph.D. in Computer security and a Master degree in Theoretical physics. Previously, he worked at the European Commission’s CISO office, where he developed the corporate IT security strategy and policy, and was the link between the operational security teams and the senior management.
Before joining ENISA he worked as an IT auditor at KPMG in The Hague, and as an IT architect and protocol designer for the Dutch government e-ID systems DigiD and eHerkenning. He also worked as a software developer in Italy.
