Bio: Martijn Grooten is a digital security researcher with more than 15 years of experience working in cybersecurity. He spent many of those years at Virus Bulletin, where he was the main organizer of the Virus Bulletin conference for six editions, and worked as a product tester and ad hoc security researcher. He spoke at several international conferences, including RSA, Black Hat, NorthSec, TROOPERS and Botconf (twice). In recent years, he has focused on digital threats against vulnerable groups. He co-founded the Coalition Against Stalkerware and has done other work on tech abuse. He was part of the team that developed the Ford Foundation’s Cybersecurity Assessment Tool and as of early 2022 has been working as digital security technologist at Internews. Martijn lives in Athens, Greece and loves cooking, running and reading – or just thinking about the good old days when he did all those things.
