Symposium 2019

Symposium
dcypher Symposium 2019 connecting cybersecurity knowledge – enterprises - policies
#dSymp 3 December 2019 Media Plaza Utrecht  

The biannual dcypher symposium wants, on the basis of concrete research or education projects in progress or (almost) completed, to show visitors what is happening in the implementation of successive editions of the National Cyber Security Research Agenda (NCSRA) and how dcypher gives substance to the task in the field of cyber security higher education. Important sub-themes are digital sovereignty (or self-reliance) and the national cyber security higher education agenda ("leading towards strengthening the cyber security workforce"). Through the symposium program, dcypher wants to talk to the participants about these sub-themes. 

The Symposium offers opportunities for knowledge sharing through meetings and exhibitions. The program offers space for meetings and interaction between current and future NCSRA implementers (researchers), teachers, potential buyers of cyber security knowledge, representatives of governments, and so on. The symposium has an international character by also inviting foreign partners who are already collaborating with Dutch knowledge institutions in research projects under the flag of the NCSRA, or with which a cooperative relationship may possibly be entered into in the future. The exhibition element takes shape through a demo expo.

The dcypher Symposium is co-funded through a MIT Grant for Network activities by TKI HTSM.

This symposium is organised by dcypher in close cooperation with the Dutch Research Council (NWO), the Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RvO), the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) and the Applied Science Organisation (NPRO-SIA). New this edition is that also the Netherlands Organisation for applied scientific research (TNO) contributes and the recently founded Dutch Institute for Vulnerability Disclosure (DIVD).
