Troels Oerting
Head for Cybersecurity, WEF Global Cybersecurity Center


Troels Oerting is a globally recognized cybersecurity expert. He serves on a number of corporate boards, including as nonexecutive director in key companies and in high-profile advisory roles. Troels has been working on the cybersecurity frontline for the last 38 years and has held a number of significant posts both nationally and international. Previously, Troels was group chief information security officer (CISO) and group chief security officer at Barclays, where he had end-to-end responsibility for all security in Barclays Group, leading the more than 3,000 security experts worldwide who protect the bank’s 50 million customers and 140,000 employees. Before joining Barclays, Troels was director of the European Cybercrime Centre (EC3), an EU-wide center located in Europol’s HQ tasked with assisting law enforcement agencies in protecting 500 million citizens in the 28 EU member states from cybercrime or loss of privacy. In this role, he also initiated the establishment of the international Joint Cybercrime Action Task Force (J-CAT) comprising global leading law enforcement agencies, prosecutors, and Interpol’s Global Centre of Innovation. The J-CAT has since been recognized as the leading international response to the increasing threat from organized cybercriminal networks. An expert in cybersecurity, Troels has constantly been looking for new legislative, technical, or cooperation opportunities to efficiently protect privacy and security for internet users, and he has been pioneering new methodologies to prevent crime in cyberspace and protect innocent users from losing their digital identity, assets, or privacy online. Troels was cyber advisor for the EU Commission and Parliament and has been a permanent delegate in many governance organizations, including ICANN, ITU, and the Council of Europe. He has also served as an advisor to several governments and organizations for cyber-related questions. Troels established a vast global outreach program that brought together law enforcement, NGOs, key tech companies, industry leaders, and academic research institutes to establish a multifaceted global coalition against cybercriminal syndicates and networks, with the aim of enhancing online security without harming privacy and inventing new ways of protecting internet users. Earlier in his career, Troels was assistant director for Europol’s Organised Crime Department and the Counterterrorist Department, as well as director of operations for the Danish Security Intelligence Service and director of the Danish Serious Organised Crime Agency (SOCA). Troels is an extern lecturer in cybercrime at a number of universities and business schools and has been recognized several times by global law enforcement agencies for his international leadership in fighting cyber and organized crime. He is author of a political thriller published in Danish: Operation Gamma.
