Since the establishment of dcypher (Dutch cybersecurity platform higher education and research) in 2016, the Ministry of Defense was represented in the dcypher Advisory Council. The ministry is now also taking concrete action and participating in activities that are carried out under the dcypher flag. This also includes special activities desired by Defense, such as the organization of a Cybersecurity Grand Challenge. The ministry enters into the administrative consultations which the Dutch Ministries of Justice & Security, Economic Affairs & Climate Policy and Education Culture & Science and The Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO) are already part of and where the course of dcypher is determined.
