The innovation programme 'Automated Security Operations' is led by TNO in close collaboration with HSD Office and several HSD partners. The programme includes the developement of an extensive automation (security by machine speed) by using AI together with the HSD community. Aim is to contribute to safe cybersecurity operations within businesses and on the other hand resulting in more cost efficiency as well as labour efficiency. (Responding to the lack of cyber security talent, as mentioned in our Human Capital Agenda Security) The main goal of extensive automation within security operations is to lever against the extensive evolution of sophisticated threat and attack methods.
Several providers of security solutions and value added services (f.i. KPN, VMWare, Cisco and Infradata) have shown a lot of interest for the planned innovations of this automated security platform. Both Cyberveilig Nederland (CVNL) and the HSD Office are involved to expand this consortium with specialized solution providers, who can improve their products and services based on the innovations of the automated security solutions. In september 2020 the consortium started with support of the Ministry of Economic Affairs.
It is the follow-up of the signing of a Letter of Intent in October 2019.
