Learn what ETIS Members have to say about being part of the ETIS Community...

Our members are the heart and soul of ETIS. They are the ones who selflessly, in addition to their regular jobs, put in the time and effort to make ETIS and our Working Groups successful. They are also the main driving force behind all of our activities, whether it be projects, surveys, topics, reference documents or new working groups. 

Within the ETIS community, people share with others because they want to help, learn, compare but above all share their knowledge and experience. And between all of our Telco members, associates and partners, there is a lot to be shared.  

Below you can find just a few examples to showcase how our members are taking advantage of the wealth of knowledge residing within the ETIS community. Should you have any questions or would like to find out more about how you can participate, please do not hesitate to contact us.

 "Cyber security and defense have found their way up to the highest management into our organisations. As today’s sophisticated cyber threats are rapidly increasing, it is important to raise awareness that it is not an individual risk but ultimately one that we must share through our communities and peers. More than ever, the ISWG proves itself to be a great platform for sharing experiences on the development of Information Security in our organisations. I’m very eager and excited to see how the newly created Incident Response (CERT) group is going to be further developed in the future as the existing trust between the ETIS members is per definition a key factor to its success!”

Andy De Petter, Information Security Governance
Proximus & ETIS ISWG Chairman

"ETIS enables our company to share knowledge with our peers in the market. Not simply sharing knowledge but collaborate to improve and drive new innovation. A great variety of topics; How to handle the new GDPR law? Insights in how to create happy customers, Which systems do we need to invest in and Which methods do we need to use to become a digital company."

"Our most important considerations to join ETIS is to profit from the opportunities to share, discuss, and exchange ideas with peers in our industry. The ETIS workshops allow us to meet multiple Telco operators and service providers at the same time, which enables us to get a better view on common challenges and solutions for improving our technical landscape.”

Bram Van der Zwet, Head of Technical Strategy & Architecture

 "Standing in isolation, even the most competent CIOs and IT leaders are like computers not connected to the network. Today in order to achieve our results, execute our strategy and improve business performance we depend more and more on a solid network of experts where sharing experiences, best-practices, main challenges of the industry. ETIS is one of the ways to achieve this.”
