We focus on nine societal areas.
TNO cooperates with companies, the public sector and other organisations, to apply our knowledge and expertise with and for others.
We develop knowledge not for its own sake, but for practical application.
TNO offers you the chance to do groundbreaking work and help customers and society with innovative, practical and smart solutions.
On our TNOTIME platform you can find blogs, interviews and background stories. Discover the field of TNO captured in photographs, animations, video and text. Share interesting articles and powerful infographics, or download whitepapers.
The fourth edition of this report contains the expertise of a record number of parties, such as TNO, the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC), the National Police, Bits of Freedom, Europol, Deloitte, ID Quantique, Philips, Accenture, Check Point, GSMA, PWC, Zimperium, Kaspersky and KPN.
Today we see old vulnerabilities show up in new technologies, and hardware and software vendors are not held to account to ensure their safety. Therefore the capability of the security industry to prevent, detect, and respond is minimal. To successfully combat cybercrime, intensive collaboration and sharing knowledge and experience is necessary, now more than ever.
The report looks back at the developments in the past year with a summary of the annual Cyber Security Assessment in the Netherlands in 2016 by the NCSC. It discusses various forms of cybercrime, including phishing. It also examines the various threats in e-mail, insider threats, targeted attacks on devices and the opportunities and threats of Internet of Things. And what is the role of humans when it comes to cyber security? After all, no matter how well you technically protect yourself, if someone clicks the wrong link, you are powerless.
TNO works with various research projects on the human factor in cyber security. Our ambition is to make humans the strongest link. TNO studies offer interesting insights about this subject. The studies show that the human factor next to the aspects of technical protection is unjustly given little attention to making the cyber world more secure.
The European Cyber Security Perspectives is a partnership of the Dutch National Police, the Dutch National Cyber Security Centre and a number of innovative parties and companies, including TNO. KPN brought the parties together and published the report. The idea is that collaboration and knowledge is essential in the field of cybersecurity. The purpose of the report is to share this knowledge.
Read now the Cyber Security Perspectives 2017, as well as the previous editions.
