Brenno de Winter
Brenno de Winter, 1971, is a Dutch hacker and community member, former journalist, harbour master, cat owner (and lover). He first programmed at the age of five or six and the initiator of the Kwetsbaarheden Analyse Tool (KAT) - the OpenKat.nl project.
During the COVID19-pandemic the Netherlands turned to hackers to help them make digital solutions to fight the pandemic. Why was it? What does this do to a government body like ministry? What does this mean for privacy, security and the tech choices that are made?
During crises – like COVID19 – software is made under immense pressure in a volatile environment. Security should focus on anything that makes one vulnerable. OpenKAT does this with real forensic proof, with the right context and useful in real life.
