Arjen Kamphuis - Hacktivist

1,539 views •

In the world of cybersecurity, Arjen Kamphuis is a luminary and recognised expert dedicated to safeguarding digital privacy and promoting online security. 

A Dutch cybersecurity expert, Arjen Kamphuis is known for his advocacy of digital privacy and commitment to creating a safer online environment. With a background in information technology, Kamphuis is a sought-after consultant and speaker on matters of cybersecurity, encryption, and data protection.Kamphuis co-authored the book “Information Security for Journalists,” emphasising the importance of safeguarding digital communications in an era of increasing online surveillance. He was a fervent advocate for the use of encryption tools to protect sensitive information, particularly for journalists and individuals operating in politically sensitive environments.

Arjen Kamphuis arrives at London Real studios bespectacled, dressed in black, sporting long-flowing Metallica hair and a Dutch accent. He reminds me of a friend of mine from 7th Grade in San Diego who played Dungeons and Dragons by day, coded Fortran by night, and played chess blindfolded for kicks. I’m pretty certain this will be a fun show.


It’s hard to put a label on Arjen which is why I went with the cop-out title “Hacktivist”, whatever the hell that means. On one hand Arjen is technically brilliant, able to understand the minutiae of high level cryptography. On the other hand he has a unique perspective on the global implications of privacy and the revelations of Edward Snowden.

To top it all off he has a technical understanding of Bitcoin which is refreshing to hear since most London Real guests approach it from a finance perspective. No offence Max Keiser!

But his greatest asset is easily his personality. He’s a genuine, thoughtful, warm-hearted guy who is trying to get his message out there to the masses. With a partner like Annie Machon (another extremely awesome person) I expect these two to keep challenging both our governments and us citizens to deeply consider the impact of privacy and its effects on our human rights.
