Prins commented on joining KSA governance – In the task that the KSA now faces, many of my interests come together. There are administrative aspects to regulating a market. How do you create conditions that create an attractive legal market that ensures that illegal providers are pushed aside? And of course, you also have the IT and security aspects. It is an interesting and exciting job that the KSA stands for. I hope to be able to help with the other members of the advisory board. “
