Cooperation and business opportunities

On the Benelux Day of the Security Essen trade fair, the German-Dutch Chamber of Commerce (DNHK) is organising a forum on networked security technology and cybersecurity in cooperation with the Dutch security cluster Security Delta (HSD). Industry experts from Germany and the Netherlands will explain current developments in both countries. Entrepreneurs will report from practice and discuss trends and opportunities in the neighbouring country together with the audience. 


Joining forces and sharing expertise

In a digitalised world, high-quality security technology and cybersecurity are increasingly intertwined. The networking of systems and remote access to facilities and IT systems have become both a valued standard and a risk. This is because third parties exploit security gaps in companies and public organisations on a large scale, resulting in high image damage and even costs that threaten the existence of the company. Smaller companies are also regularly affected.


Hackers and criminals do not stop at national borders. What can security experts from Germany and the Netherlands do to counter this? Can we learn from experiences in the neighbouring country, to what extent do products and services from both countries complement each other and where do the greatest market opportunities arise?


German-Dutch exchange 


During the forum you will be able to talk to experts in networked security technology and cybersecurity from Germany and the Netherlands. Get involved in the interactive programme and expand your contacts with entrepreneurs in the neighbouring country at the subsequent networking event!  


Benelux Day


The forum will take place within the framework of the Benelux Day at Security Essen on Wednesday, 21 September. This action day invites exhibitors and visitors to make contacts across borders.
