Raoul is Productmanager Trust & Identity at SURF.NL and a member of LIBER’s FIM4L Working Group.
After working in IT for the Department of Defense, doing jobs at multi nationals like Philips and Akzo at Atos, and having several roles in IT, Raoul was hired by SURF while working as an independent contractor. As he both finds the education space as well as the identity space interesting, and loved the culture, professionalism and work ethics he saw in the SURF Trust and Identity team, in 2015 he applied for a job in that team.
SURF is driven to make getting access to resources both easier and more secure,while giving users control over their privacy and protect that privacy. This initiative is in line with and contributes to that cause.
