What challenges and questions relating to cyber resilience do organisations have, what cyber threats can we expect in future and what knowledge, tools and methods must we develop to make ourselves more cyber resilient now and in the future? These are the topics that TNO is addressing together with trade and industry. At TNO some 100 people in all work on cyber security. This is unique and makes TNO the independent expertise centre for applied knowledge of cyber security. As a research institution, TNO has a complementary role in the market alongside the providers of cyber security products and services.
High-value knowledge – in the field of, for example, cryptology, anomaly detection, the role of people in combination with technology, new forms of transactions, network technologies, predictive analysis, artificial intelligence and organisational aspects – gives rise regularly new technologies, innovative tools and new methods that commercialised in various ways. TNO serves different types of customer: managed security service providers (MSSPs), large companies with their own cyber security environment and suppliers of cyber security services and products.
Cyber security is vitally important in the financial sector. In 2014 a number of parties in this sector, including the three major Dutch banks, decided to carry out joint research under the programme leadership of TNO. “And that is unique. Nowhere in the world will you find a collaboration of this nature between such large parties in the same sector, who are highly competitive in the market, but who in the field of cyber security undertake joint research in a trusted environment and share their findings. Moreover, it is exceptional that not only TNO but also the participants themselves are providing research capacity, and that produces highly interesting insights and results,” says Dimitri Hehanussa, business developer Cyber security ICT.
Within the Cyber security roadmap we are focusing on a number of propositions that enable us to serve both the demand side of cyber security solutions and the supply side:
Does your company already see cyber security as a precondition, not as a necessary evil? You would do well to get started on it because to stand still is to move backwards.
