Are you active in cyber security and have an interest in The Netherlands? Then you may wish to participate in Cyber Security Week (CSW) in The Hague from October 2-5, 2018. Companies manufacturing state-of-the-art cyber security, high-tech safety and security products will not want to miss out on this major international event!
The Hague has established itself as the European Cyber Security Capital, as demonstrated by the presence of internationally renowned organizations in the area of cyber security, such as the European Cyber Crime Center (EC3), Europol, NATO CI Agency and a range of national organizations like the National Cyber Security Center and The Netherlands Forensic Institute.
CSW is being organized by the Hague Security Delta (HSD), the leading security cluster in Europe, and supported by the Canadian Embassy in the Netherlands. CSW will begin with the ONE Conference and CIPRE (Critical Infrastructure Protection and Resilience), followed by the CSW Congress & Expo and Matchmaking (CSWmatch). You can view the full agenda here.
Apart from your personal expenses for transportation, meals and accommodation, there are no further costs to participate. Should you wish to join, the Trade Commissioners at the Embassy of Canada to The Netherlands are here to help! The number of reserved spots is on a first-come, first-served basis. The deadline for registration is August 1.
The CSW Expo and CSWmatch will focus on:
- Infrastructures and Systems
- Solutions for Business
- Security and society
- Security and safety in case of crisis
- Security of infrastructures and utilities
- Surveillance and border security
- Systems integration and interoperability.
Please note! You may be eligible for Going Global Innovation (GGI)
Program funding. GGI offers funding to support Canadian Innovators seeking foreign partners for the purpose of establishing a collaborative R&D agreement. There is no deadline to apply but funding is limited and applications must be submitted 8 weeks before travel.
Financial support for small and medium organizations can also be found at CanExport.
Take advantage of the Canada-EU Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) and the support of the Canadian Trade Commissioner Service for your global needs.
We hope that you will take this exciting opportunity to join the Canadian mission to CSW. With your confirmation/registration, you will receive information on hotels near the venue.
Just before or just after your participation in this event, you may also wish to participate in our Soft-Landing Program, also in cooperation with The Hague Security Delta. This program offers Canadian and Dutch small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) a unique opportunity to ‘soft land’ for a trial period in the respective Dutch and Canadian markets. Should you wish to pursue this opportunity, please let us know and we will send you the application form as well as an overview of the Cyber Security Sector in The Netherlands.
If you have any questions or wish to participate, please contact our office and we will send you the necessary forms and put you directly in touch with the Trade Commissioners.
