Patricia Zorko is the Deputy National Coordinator for Security and Counterterrorism (NCTV) and Director of the NCTV’s Cybersecurity Department since 1 November 2015. Keeping the Netherlands safe has been a recurrent theme throughout her career. She has worked for 34 years with the police holding a variety of posts including head of a community police team, policy adviser, riot squad member, member of the regional management team and district commander. In her last few years she joined the Netherlands Police Agency to coordinate the integration of the National Crime Squad with the International Police Cooperation Service. She then moved on to become chief of the National Unit of the National Police. Her work as Director of the Cybersecurity Department centres on digital protection, a challenge with a broad range of responsibilities. Her decision to vigorously spotlight cybersecurity has resulted in the Dutch Cybersecurity Agenda: seven goals to which public and private sector parties are committing themselves to further enhance the Netherlands’ approach to cybersecurity. This initiative puts cybersecurity at the heart of the Dutch Digitalisation Strategy.
