Irma, Assistant to the Head of Operations Department, of Dutch origin.
I joined ENISA in 2005, in its early days, after having worked in The Hague, Zurich and Brussels. In general I like new challenges and opportunities to extend my knowledge.
I had since long loved Greece because of the beautiful nature, climate, music and dances, so moving here was an easy decision for me. So far, it has been a very exciting journey to follow the Agency’s developments. Firstly I was working in Crete, and now I am based in Athens. Working for a Head of Department has given me a great overview of all the topical issues related to cyber security, and a professional opportunity to use my organisational and language skills. Since I have always been passionate about European integration, it is a real privilege for me to be able to contribute to this process by working for ENISA. I enjoy the international atmosphere at work and the opportunities to spend my life in this beautiful country.
