The Netherlands has been a priority for CyNation since its founding and the company has made a concerted effort to collaborate with Dutch organisations over the years. The Netherlands is a dynamic market full of innovation, particularly in the tech sector, and serves as a cornerstone of our European expansion. The Hague, especially, is renowned as the City of Peace, Justice and Security.
We opened our first European office at the Hague Security Delta in 2017, putting us at the centre of Europe’s leading security cluster. During the same week, we sponsored the 2017 edition of the UK-NL Cyber Security Showcase, which brought together 45 of the most innovative UK and NL-based cyber security companies to showcase their knowledge, products and services.
At the start of 2018, Koen Gijsbers, former General Manager of the NATO Communications and Information Agency, joined CyNation’s Board of Directors. A leading IT and cyber executive, Koen is a sought-after advisor for governments and companies, both at the board and executive level. Koen has been a vital source of advice and expertise.
Another important partner for us has been Holland FinTech, with whom we have participated in various events and missions. They also featured us in the Risk & Compliance section of their Dutch Fintech Infographic 4.0.
In October 2019, we were exhibiting at Infosecurity.nl. With many of Europe’s CISOs and CIOs in attendance, we discussed with them the most burning cybersecurity issues: how to navigate through the risks inherent in digital ecosystems, vendors and third parties, and drive business growth. We suggested a four-step approach to addressing digital risks: identify critical risks and shadow vendors within an organisation’s digital ecosystem, analyse the risk performance and business impact on an enterprise’s growth, provide actionable intelligence to mitigate risks, and manage business risk for assurance, compliance and resilience.
2020 will be no different and we are excited to announce we will be sponsoring the UK-NL Cyber & FinTech Summit in the Hague on 20 February, organised by the British Embassy in the Hague. In the spirit of our new partnership with Compumatica, we will co-exhibit at the event as well as host a presentation and workshop.
Compumatica is an independent Dutch cybersecurity manufacturer in the field of encryption and network security and segmentation based in Uden. Their solutions add critical mitigation capabilities along with our risk identification, analysis and management products. Our customers will benefit from our partnership as we now offer a comprehensive and complementary set of proactive and intelligent end-to-end security and risk solutions.
As our partners at Compumatica assert, “the collaboration between CyNation and Compumatica is about combining our values together and creating added value to our customers in the United Kingdom, the Netherlands and Europe.”
We are eager to continue to strengthen our connections to the Netherlands in the years to come!
