The National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) is the central information hub and centre of expertise for cyber security in the Netherlands. NCSC's mission is to contribute to the enhancement of the resilience of Dutch society in the digital domain, and thus to create a secure, open and stable information society. On an international level the NCSC is the Dutch point of contact in the field of ICT threats and cyber security incidents. The NCSC is also a key figure in the operational coordination at a major ICT crisis and the Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT) for the Dutch central government.

 

The main activities of the NCSC are:

  • Response to threats and incidents;
  • Perception and action prospects;
  • Improving crisis management;
  • Cyber security collaboration platform.

The primary target group of the NCSC is the Dutch central government and the vital infrastructure. Vital sectors are crucial for the proper functioning of Dutch society. Examples of vital sectors are energy, water and telecom.

The NCSC is a division of the Cyber Security Department (DCS), part of the National Coordinator for Security and Counterterrorism (NCTV), and falls under the responsibility of the Ministry of Security and Justice. Ms. Patricia Zorko is the Director of Cyber Security and also the deputy National Coordinator for Security and Counterterrorism. Mr. Hans de Vries is Head of the National Cyber Security Centre.
