Ambassador Timo Koster—career diplomat at the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Ambassador-at-large for Security Policy and Cyber—discusses promising developments in cyber diplomacy and security with EWI's Executive Vice President Bruce McConnell.
"Cybersecurity is not confined to national borders, it is a shared security interest and it's something that we have to tackle together," says Ambassador Koster. "It is also interlinked to other parts of conflict."
Ambassador Koster joined the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs after earning a law degree from the University of Amsterdam, and his service there spans nearly three decades, including diplomatic posts in Nairobi, London and Athens, where he was appointed Deputy Ambassador at the Royal Netherlands Embassy. He also served as director for defense policy and capabilities on the NATO International Staff in Brussels and is a fellow at the Atlantic Council’s Scowcroft Center for Strategy and Security.
