Greg van der Gaast

CISO, Scoutbee GmbH

Greg van der Gaast is a frequent speaker and consultant on bringing care, initiative, and
accountability to the Information Security profession to break out of today’s costly and often
ineffective reactive status quo.
He is an expert at building Information Security organisations that perform better at protecting the
business and enable it through numerous other benefits, including increased IT quality, new
business capabilities, and even additional revenue.
He does this by introducing elements of leadership, strategic thinking, and business alignment rarely
seen in Information Security.
His security and business experience spans nearly 25 years, from covert operations with the FBI and
DoD to creating bespoke security programmes and organisations for Fortune 500 companies.
In addition to being the CISO of Scoutbee GmbH, he is also a Bloor Navigator and Managing Director
at consultancy CMCG.
