Centre of Expertise Cyber Security

The focus of THUAS’ Centre of Expertise Cyber Security (CoECS), created in 2015, is on helping those organisations that lack sufficient expertise to protect themselves from and become more resilient to cyber threats. The Centre has a strong (inter)national network. It conducts high quality research on various cyber security themes, involving its research groups, professors, researchers and students. The CoECS is also involved in the development of various educational programs and Master courses inside as well as outside The Hague University of Applied Sciences.
