Innovation Mission Cybersecurity Taiwan

15 Feb 2019
Author: HSD Foundation

Are you active in the field of cybersecurity and are you interested in new possibilities? Are you considering options abroad?  Do you wish to represent The Netherlands with your knowledge? You should join the Innovation mission to Taiwan from 19 May to 24 May!


Taiwan is becoming more and more digitalised, which offers opportunities in terms of work and economic growth. However, with opportunities, threats are right around the corner. The amount of targeted cyber attacks on both public and private organisations have risen over the years and they will continue to rise. These attacks will become more proffesional, more sophisticated, as cybercriminals become smarter. The Taiwanese government realises the risks of these threats and the importance of offering as much protection as possible will invest millions of euros in the next few years.


Dutch expertise

The Netherlands has extensive knowledge in the field of cybercrime, for example when it comes to critical infrastructure-security. These techniques could be applied in Taiwan in order to lower the number of successful cyber attacks. Dutch companies are also able to use the  Global EPiC Soft-Landing Programme to do this in Taiwan.



During this mission, participants will have the opportunity to attend the largest cybersecurity conference:  The Explore Next Cyber Taiwan 2019. This is where you will have the opportunity to meet important stakeholders and you will have the opportunity to plan one-on-one meetings. We also organise visits to companies and networking opportunities, to name a few activities. Click here to see a tentative programme (Dutch).



Of course, there is one final goal: to establish market opportunities and connections and to position and expand the Dutch knowledge in the cyberfield. If this mission is successful and there are sufficient opportunities, we will explore possible further outcomes.
