dcypher Symposium 2017 connects cybersecurity knowledge 

Are you interested or involved in cybersecurity research, development, innovation, business and/or (higher) education? Come and join us at the first edition of the dcypher Symposium on the 4th of October. There will be a lot to learn, to discuss and share in cybersecurity R&D, innovation and higher education.

We believe that networking is essential so there will be many opportunities to meet speakers and participants. Our event is a meeting place for cybersecurity teachers and students, for former, current and possibly future executors of cybersecurity R&D projects, for public and private research partners, for enterprises in need of cybersecurity professionals, for potential profit and non-profit users of research results and policy makers.

Register now, seats are limited! Except for networking, the plenary opening and closing sessions, we have sixteen parallel sessions, a demo expo, theme tables and the dcypher Lecture Series. Our event is free of charge. After the summerbreak the Symposium programme will be published. We are proud to announce we currently have the following keynote speakers for our plenary sessions:

The Lecture Series

Part of the Symposium is the dcypher Lecture Series. Renowned teachers will give lectures covering different aspects of cybersecurity in the Auditorium of Media Plaza. The Lecture Series is open to all Symposium visitors but students with a strong interested in cybersecurity are specifically invited!


Showcase cybersecurity R&D results, solutions reached in partnership. You will get an impression of the output resulting from earlier tenders for medium term (SBIR) and long term cybersecurity research, both nationally and internationally. Solutions for bridging gaps between cybersecurity higher education curricula and demands from the labor market will be addressed. Sharing ideas will be encouraged, e.g. by discussing challenges of translating research output into innovative solutions, how to make cybersecurity a strength of our infrastructures, how to improve the flow between higher and academic education in cybersecurity. We offer a podium for cybersecurity R&D and education projects, either recently completed or in progress. Also an exposition of new cybersecurity solutions is foreseen.

The symposium is organised by dcypher in close cooperation with the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO), the Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RvO), the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) and Applied Science Organisation (SIA) in in conjunction with the European Cybersecurity Month and AlertOnline
