Next to CIPRE, and the networking reception in the City Hall, the highlight of the Cyber Security Week was the CSW Congress and Expo: a 2-day event in the Fokker Terminal organised together with 130 partners. During 57 events, visitors from 63 countries joined panel discussions on international collaboration and talent, workshops, games, pitches for capital and many more.
