Cybersecurity hoogleraren vrezen dat Nederland digitaal onder water komt te staan!


Part of the ICTOPEN 2018 cybersecurity program on March 20st is the announcement of the winner of the Dutch Cyber Security Research Paper Award competition (DCSRP Award). It is the fourth time this competition is held.Also this year an international jury was composed to select three outstanding papers out of all submitted Dutch recent non-commercial scientific cybersecurity research papers. The 2018 Jury members for the DCSRP Award are Prof. Dr. Konrad RieckProf. Evangelos Markatos and Prof. Richard Calyton. The Jury meets under technical chairmanship of Drs. Jan Piet Barthel. During the meeting the Jury determines, out of the top three, which paper deserves the Best Paper predicate.On March 20st the main authors of all three selected papers will present their paper and receive a personalized certificate, signed by the Jury. After these papers presentations the winner is announced. The winner receives the Dutch Cyber Security Research Paper Award, handed over by Drs. Jan Piet Barthel. In addition the winner receives a bonus cheque, sponsored by IBM!Cybersecurity research papers should be submitted by security research group leaders or members of Dutch Knowledge Institutions before 19th of January 2018. More information:Jurymembers DCSRP AWARD 2018 (pdf)Call for Dutch Cyber Security best Research PapersMore information about the DCSRP Award contest in previous ICT.OPEN editions ICT.OPEN is the principal ICT research conference in the Netherlands.

The General Affairs Council today adopted conclusions calling for the strengthening of European cybersecurity and enhancing cyber resilience across the EU, in line with the tasking from the European Council in October 2017.The conclusions stress the need for all EU countries to make the necessary resources and investment available to address cybersecurity. They welcome the intention of increasing EU efforts in cybersecurity research and development by setting up a network of cybersecurity competence centres across the Union.The Council also backs the plan to set up a world-class European cybersecurity certification framework to increase trust in digital solutions. The conclusions highlight the important connection between trust in digital Europe and achieving cyber resilience across the EU. Significant attention is paid to the strength of cryptography used in products and services within the digital single market.Other measures highlighted by the Council include providing the necessary law enforcement tools to tackle cybercrime, developing a coordinated EU-level response to large-scale cyber incidents and crises, and conducting pan-European cybersecurity exercises on a regular basis. Regarding the global and diplomatic aspects of cybersecurity, the Council recognises the importance of international cooperation and welcomes the creation of a clear framework for using the political, diplomatic and economic tools available to the EU as a response to malicious cyber activities."Cybercrime and state-sponsored malicious cyber activities are one of the largest global threats to our societies and economies. We already lose around €400 billion globally every year due to cyber-attacks. This clearly underlines the need for the EU to use the available tools to increase stability in cyberspace and respond to large-scale cyber incidents. The EU simply has to stay ahead of the game,” said Matti Maasikas, Estonia's Deputy Minister for European Affairs and chair of today's Council meeting. “Increasing our efforts and investment in cybersecurity is a pre-condition for building a strong and trusted digital single market for our citizens,” Maasikas added.Council conclusions on the joint communication to the EP and the Council: Resilience, deterrence and defence: building strong cybersecurity for the EUDigital single market for Europe
In the last 20 years, the Dutch information security community grew from a handful of brilliant mathematicians to a large community of cybersecurity researchers with representatives from many of the technical and the social sciences. The Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO) and the European Commission have provided over a hundred million Euros of funding in long term Dutch Cyber Security Research. This has led to dozens of new businesses, hundreds of highly skilled employees in all major corporations, government departments and universities, and thousands of scientific publications and patents.Dutch Cyber Security best Research Paper (DCSRP) AwardAnnouncing the winner of the Dutch Cybersecurity best Research Paper award at ICT.OPEN became a tradition. This contest will be organized for the fourth time! ICT security research groups at Dutch universities and knowledge centres are invited to nominate their best recent (2017/2018 accepted) research papers, with a maximum of two papers per group. Again a jury of international scientists in the fields of cybersecurity will be formed and asked to judge submitted papers. Dutch ICT cybersecurity research group leaders are asked to send in a maximum of two papers per research group before January 19th, 2018 to dcypher.Out of all nominated papers the jury selects both the top three as well as the winning paper. In the first week of March dcypher will inform all three selected nominees. They are expected to present their paper March 20th at ICT.OPEN in the Cybersecurity Track. All presenters receive a signed certificate. The winner receives the Dutch Cyber Security best Research Paper Award. Also see: Announcement Jury DCSRP Award 2018More information about the DCSRP Award contest in previous ICT.OPEN editions ICT.OPEN is the principal ICT research conference in the Netherlands.

Opkomende technologieën als het Internet of Things (IoT) of Artificial Intelligence (AI) bieden grote economische perspectieven, maar leveren ook nieuwe veiligheidsproblemen op. Een rapport van het kabinet van de Britse premier zet uiteen hoe wetenschap en technologie kunnen bijdragen aan het overheidsbeleid. Dan gaat het bijvoorbeeld om het stimuleren van gewenste ontwikkelingen, het zorgen voor veilige, betrouwbare technologieën en het ontwikkelen van een adequate kennisbasis in de arbeidsmarkt en bij de overheid zelf op het gebied van cybervaardigheden. Een nationaal Cyber Security Research Plan moet ervoor zorgen dat er geen lacunes in het beleid en de kennisbasis ontstaan.Nieuwsbericht TeissNieuwsbericht TechUKRapport Britse overheid (pdf)
Nederland heeft een hoogopgeleide bevolking, maar moet het onderwijssysteem blijven verbeteren om dit succes te behouden. De OESO beveelt ons land aan om meer nadruk te leggen op het bijbrengen van basisvaardigheden, te investeren in vaardigheid-intensieve werkplekken en een leven lang leren te promoten. ‘Met alleen maar digitale kennis red je het in de toekomst niet’, stelt een artikel van NRC. Het vraagt zich af hoe we kinderen en ouderen kunnen voorbereiden op de snel veranderende arbeidsmarkt. Hoogleraar arbeidsmarkt Ton Wilthagen en organisatiepsycholoog Aukje Nauta geven daarvoor enkele aanzetten.Nieuwsbericht Neth-ERRapport OESO (pdf)Artikel NRC (registratie verplicht) 
Er is meer geld voor wetenschappelijk onderzoek beschikbaar, maar minister Ingrid van Engelshoven (OCW) zegt nog niet hoe ze dit wil besteden, aldus een bericht van HOP / Observant. Ze komt pas in het voorjaar met “concrete plannen voor gerichte investeringen”.Nieuwsbericht HOP / Observant
NWO draagt 550 miljoen euro bij aan het Kennis- en Innovatiecontract 2018-2019. Hierin hebben overheid, bedrijfsleven en kennisinstellingen hun inhoudelijke ambities voor de topsectoren vastgelegd. Een belangrijk nieuw onderdeel van de NWO-inzet is de zogenaamde ‘cross-over call’. Hiermee financiert NWO onderzoek dat gericht is op maatschappelijke uitdagingen, waarbij de onderzoeksthema’s meerdere topsectoren verbinden. Voor de ‘cross-over call’ is een budget van 40 miljoen euro beschikbaar.Nieuwsbericht NWO
