Jelle is fascinated by the intersection of cybersecurity and other disciplines like human-centered design, safety research, marketing and data science. Having investigated some of the largest data breaches in the world, he has a pretty unique view of what happens when things go wrong in cybersecurity - both from a deep technical and a boardroom perspective. He aims to use that insight to build better and more secure teams, tools and businesses and strongly believes that can only be done by positioning the security organisation as a forward-looking, enabling, data-driven, fast-moving team instead of the traditional 'department of NO'. 2030 - 2045 Discussion/ wrap-up 2045 - 2115 Networking + drinks Event sponsor: Bierens Incasso Advocaten Follow us on Twitter: @LegalHackersAMS Use the following hashtags: #LegalHack #InfoSec #CyberSecurity * this event is in English • What to bring Curiosity, thirst and an appetite • Important to know Capped at 45 people: be quick

    What we're about

    Public Group

    Legal Hackers is a global movement of lawyers, policymakers, technologists, and academics who explore and develop creative solutions to some of the most pressing issues at the intersection of law and technology. Through local meetups, hackathons, and workshops, Legal Hackers spot issues and opportunities where technology can improve and inform the practice of law and where law, legal practice, and policy can adapt to rapidly changing technology.

    We are explorers. We are doers. We are Legal Hackers.

    Amsterdam Legal Hackers originated from 'Clinic' foundation, an Amsterdam based Law Clinic run by law students.
