Ph.D. Defense: Pics, Slides ‘n’ Thanks

On 25 November, I defended my thesis and obtained my degree as a doctor in law during a public ceremony in the University of Amsterdam church aula. And a ceremony it was: a rather dramatic affair, complete with magic wands, fake candles, druid robes, hobbit-hats and sciency spells – all set in holy surroundings.

Thanks to my Committee and all of you for being there in spirit, or in the flesh. You’ve all made this a finale I’ll always remember fondly.  Continue reading Ph.D. Defense: Pics, Slides ‘n’ Thanks

Op oudejaarsdag stond mijn vijfde column in het Financieele Dagblad. Het stuk beschrijft de geschiedenis van spam en trekt lessen uit deze eeuwenoude vorm van cybercrime voor cybersecuritybeleid in 2015. Met een vleugje Nigeriaanse Prinsen, Viagra en Monty Python on the side.
