National cybersecurity organizations are going to join forces

The National Cyber ​​Security Center (NCSC), the Digital Trust Center (DTC) and the Cyber ​​Security Incident Response Team for digital service providers (CSIRT-DSP) will merge into one central center of expertise and information exchange.

Combining knowledge and information about cybersecurity, legal tasks and services in the event of major incidents increases the digital resilience of the Netherlands. This new institution will provide all organizations in the Netherlands – large or small, public or private, vital and non-vital – with appropriate information and knowledge.

Ministers Dilan Yeşilgöz-Zegerius (Justice and Security) and Micky Adriaansens (Economic Affairs and Climate), under which these organizations belong, today informed the House of Representatives about the results of an exploration into cooperation.

The government institutions have the same goals, but work for different target groups. The NCSC’s primary target groups are vital organisations, such as banks, energy and telecom providers, and the national government itself, the DTC is there for the business community and the CSIRT-DSP for digital service providers. In 2024, both Cyber ​​Security Incident Response Teams (NCSC and CSIRT-DSP) of the national government will merge. Then (2026) the two information nodes and centers of expertise (NCSC and DTC).

By creating a single organization, the national government can deploy its cybersecurity capacity more efficiently and effectively. This new organization then functions as a national center of expertise, information hub and national Computer Security Incident Response Team (CSIRT). The joining of forces also ensures efficiency in the field of joint business operations, accommodation and ICT.
