The Dutch National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) is going to work together with the Cyber Security Agency (CSA) of Singapore. They signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to join forces in the field of cybersecurity in their effort to create a safer digital world.


The agreement was signed by Patricia Zorko, Director Cyber Security and Deputy National Coordinator of Counter-Terrorism and Safety (NCTV), and David Koh, Director of CSA. Zorko emphasised the importance to fight cybercrime not only national but in an international environment. She sees many similarities between Singapore and The Netherlands.
