Bits and bytes fascinated Mary-Jo de Leeuw ever since she got a Commodore 64, back in the 80’s. What followed in the next 25 years, was much, much more (digital) toys and the “investigation” of it. But this toystory doesn’t end by “a doll on a payroll”. Nothing whatsoever. It is therefore not surprisingly that Mary-Jo founded the Dutch think and do tank Internet of Toys where scientist, toys manufacturers and politicians meet and discuss the breaches within connected toys and also the lack of privacy and legislation loops within it. You’ll find out that her nickname ‘Mario’ appeals to the imagination because of her Nintendo “addiction”.
Mary-Jo de Leeuw works as a lead advisor on cyber security and privacy at Revnext. Last but not least Mary-Jo was rewarded with the global Award: Iconic Women 2017, Creating a Better World for All by the Women Economic Forum and is a finalist at the Women in IT Awards 2018, category Global Leader of the Year
