Work Security ENG


The importance of (cyber security) has increased tremendously in recent years, especially with the digitalisation of our society.

With growing innovation and digitalisation, our digital security is becoming increasingly important. More and more sensitive information is stored in databases, and it is vital that this information is protected against cyber attacks and hacks. If you deal with this sensitive information in your work, you no doubt understand the importance of cyber security. The Hague is home to an extensive network of cyber security companies, government agencies and knowledge institutions. This makes The Hague one of the most important European hubs for cyber security.

Innovative solutions and knowledge development 

The Hague is not only the political centre of the Netherlands, but also houses many government agencies. Through a cyber attack, hackers can easily gain access to sensitive information about citizens or politically-related information. Protecting this information is therefore vital. The Hague is therefore constantly working on innovative solutions in the field of cyber security and knowledge development. 

The Hague as European hub for cyber security 

The Hague plays an important role within Europe in the field of cyber security. Security Delta (HSD) is a European cluster for digital security. This cluster attracts knowledge and expertise in the field of cyber security and makes The Hague one of the most important cyber security centres in the world. The Hague therefore regularly hosts conferences, hackathons and other events, where various experts come together to come up with new solutions.

The Hague is also home to the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC). The NCSC is responsible for protecting the Dutch vital infrastructure against cyber attacks and works with other countries to improve international cyber security. Besides the NCSC, there are many other companies and organisations active in the security sector in The Hague. Some examples include: TNO, a research institute that focuses on innovative solutions for securing buildings and infrastructure; the Royal Netherlands Marechaussee, a military police unit responsible for the security of the Netherlands' airports and borders; and the Police Academy, which provides training for officers and other security professionals.
