Reducing the risk profile: Sharing is caring, and luck strikes the prepared

Industry leaders argue that collaboration across verticals, the public and private sector, and country borders is pivotal to ensuring the best possible cyber-defence. That being said, it is still up to each individual organisation to develop an adequate capability to detect, mitigate and respond to cyber threats. Yet, why is this important?

NCSA (National Cyber Security Agenda) has established the framework for cybersecurity in the Netherlands, with the objective of capitalising on the economic and social opportunities of digitalisation, and of protecting national security in the digital domain. The question is what public authorities, business communities, sciences, and civil societies can contribute to keep the Netherlands digitally secure and consistent with the objective. 

Europol/EC3 will give insight into their experiences in combating cybercrime across Europe, and how a stronger public-private collaboration can be one of the most effective tools for organisations to reduce their overall cyber security risk profile.

Furthermore, mnemonic will describe how it is to face the adversary when it has successfully breached your defences, and share our experiences when hired by organisations to respond to cyber incidents.

Finally, in the heart of resilient cyber defence there is an effective Security Operations Centre (SOC) detecting and responding to incidents. Our last session is led by an independent consultant, who has experience in implementing SOC projects to some of the largest organisations in the Netherlands. He will talk about commonalities in such projects, and why a SOC is important in the context of a successful cybersecurity strategy.

mnemonic and the Norwegian Embassy in the Hague are pleased to invite you to this free breakfast seminar and we are looking very much forward spending the morning with you.
