About Me

Vincent Cox graduated as “Master of Science in Industrial Sciences” with a major in ICT. For his Masters’ Thesis, he developed a self-learning Web Application Firewall (WAF). It provides a high security level outperforming most WAFs (which are based on the OWASP top 10 vulnerabilities). Vincent also participated in several hackathons, such as “Hack The Future”, “Cybersecurity Challenge Belgium” where his team won several awards.
Vincent started his professional career at The Security Factory (owned by the Cronos group), where he obtained further experience in the area of security testing of applications. During his time there, he also analyzed and compared various commercial and open source toolkits which are used to this end.

Thereafter Vincent joined Ordina. During his time at Ordina, Vincent has excelled in his projects at a Telecom operator, several international heavy industry companies, government institutions and media corporations. He has learned valuable real-life experience in these multinational environments and understands better today how to manage large companies’ security risks and has helped them to become more cyber security resilient.
Vincent also earned the CSX Cybersecurity Fundamentals certificate and is currently preparing the OSCP exam.
He also shares his knowledge by speaking at public events, performing live hacking demo’s and writing blog posts.
