Albert Hoitingh
Principal Consultant Data Security & Compliance

Microsoft 365, information security and governance buff. Microsoft MVP. Speaker, history nut, family guy, ripperologist. and musical lover as-well 😁

My name is Albert Hoitingh and I'm from The Hague in The Netherlands. I love working in IT and have been doing so for quite some time. From on-premises environments, including Lotus Notes and SharePoint Server, via BPOS to Microsoft 365 - I've worked with them all. Right now, I'm a Microsoft MVP for Enterprise Mobility and (international) speaker on Microsoft 365, compliance, security and risk. I love to have discussions on compliance, security and risk in the cloud security officers, business users, architects and management. Besides my work and MVP endeavors, I love to ride my bike and be with my family. I also love to read, delve into history, and much more. I also blog at
