The Dutch National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) is a public-private partnership between ministries, investigation and intelligence services, companies within the critical infrastructure and the academic world.
The NCSC became operational on January 1, 2012. The mission of the NCSC is to increase cyber resilience of Dutch society. The NCSC aims to achieve this by gaining insight into, among other things, cyber trends, threats, incidents, and vulnerabilities, and furthermore by providing a perspective for action or support when a threat, incident or crisis occurs.
The NCSC structures its ambition along the following three pillars:
- Developing and providing expertise and advice
- Providing assistance and response in the event of threats or incidents
- Strengthening crisis management.
