Jan D'Herdt

Jan has been working in Information Security for over 18 years in a variety of roles, ranging from consultancy to what he is currently doing as the Head of Enterprise Security Architecture at a global pharmaceutical company.

Jan's security road started back in the internet boom. At a young age Jan was exposed to the World Wide Web (or as Jan likes to call it the Wild Wild West), security was not a very well-known topic and concern back then. This allowed him to learn a few tricks. Throughout his career he learned a lot by being involved in key concern areas such as privileged access management, incident handling, application and infrastructure penetration security assessments, red teams, governance , cloud security, etc. 

Jan is active in the information security community and mentoring others in their cybersecurity careers. Throughout his career, Jan has acquired numerous certifications including: GPEN, GCIH, CISSP, OSCP, etc.

Outside of infosec, Jan enjoys playing basketball and tasting beer and wine.
