Empowering a brighter future ✨

Headshot of Victoria van Roosmalen


A sassy defender against the dark (cyber) arts

Victoria van Roosmalen focuses on empowering a brighter future. She drives to foster safety and the right to privacy in the ever-evolving cyber realm by navigating others towards thoughtful outcomes and elegant solutions. Victoria invests in sharing and elevating her expertise in IT, security, and data protection—including the intersection with relevant laws and regulations.

She speaks at conferences across Europe, serves the IAPP, and sits on numerous boards as a trusted advisor. Victoria holds prestigious industry certifications, educates students in her areas of expertise, and helps forge (new) industry standards and materials—such as from NIST and the EDPB. In 2019, she was first recognised for making “significant contributions to the security and privacy sectors”.

Victoria fuels her passion for mastering her crafts by diving deep into various subject matters. It empowers her to uncover flaws rapidly, (fore)see adverse effects, and defend against threats and the dark arts—whether deeply technical or psychological. Although playing safe doesn’t allow us to flourish, Victoria is determined to help others stay ahead of the curve and reveal the seemingly impossible yet possible.
