Centre of Expertise for Cyber Security

The world is becoming increasingly digital. Be it chatting, surfing, online shopping and paying: it’s part of our daily lives. All of these information flows make us vulnerable. Employees in companies and organisations also work with sensitive information. That’s why global cyber security is one of today’s most important challenges. There is therefore also a high demand for practice-based research and innovation in the field of cyber security on a national and international level. Nevertheless, cyber security has a relatively modest place within higher education and the Ministry of Security and Justice anticipates that the Netherlands will have a shortfall of around 6800 IT professionals by 2017.
