Cyber Security & Resilience: staying safe in a digital world

Information and communication technology (ICT) is penetrating ever deeper into every facet of society.

Our dependence on data infrastructures and the equipment connected to them is growing by the day. But with the number of threats and vulnerabilities continuing to increase, we are not keeping up our digital resilience. According to the Cybersecurity Beeld Nederland 4 (CSBN4), the biggest threat comes from states and criminals. States tend to focus on stealing confidential or sensitive, competitive information (cyberspying) as well as preparing for cyberconflicts. Criminals mainly target digital fraud and theft of information that can be converted into hard euros or digital Bitcoins. It has become just as important to safeguarding security in this digital world as in the physical world.
