During the One Conference, the minister of Justice and Security, Ferdinand Grapperhaus, received the first copy of the ‘’Cybersecurity Dictionary - from cybersecurity to Dutch’’ from the director of Cyberveilig Nederland, Petra Oldengarm.


60 organisations bundle 600 words

The dictionary, with over 600 words, bridges the gap between words that are easy for cybersecurity professionals, but unknown to customers of cybersecurity services. In this way, it contributes to a digitally secure Netherlands. The dictionary can be downloaded for free on the website of the Cybersecurity Alliantie.
