Empowering a brighter future ✨

Headshot of Victoria van Roosmalen


A sassy defender against the dark (cyber) arts

Victoria van Roosmalen is focused on empowering a brighter future and navigates others towards thoughtful actions by sharing her expertise in IT, cybersecurity, and privacy. As the CISO & DPO, she drives the information security and privacy governance at Coosto—the leading SaaS solution for content & social media marketing in the Netherlands.

She speaks at conferences across Europe, serves the IAPP, and sits on multiple global advisory boards. Victoria holds various 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 sector.

She fuels her passion for mastering her crafts by diving deep into them—allowing her to rapidly (for)see adverse effects and guard against them. Although playing safe doesn’t allow us to flourish, Victoria is determined to help others stay ahead and reveal the seemingly impossible yet possible.
