The One Conference

Since 2013 The Netherlands hosts the One Conference (formerly known as the Govcert symposium, the first in 2002). For many people from the technical cyber security community one of the ‘must-visit’ conferences worldwide. Partly due to the link with the Global Conference on Cyberspace (2015) and the Dutch EU-presidency (2016) the One Conference has grown in importance and is broadened to an initiative of the national government.

Focus on cybersecurity and economic opportunities

This led to a conference with not only the focus on merely cybersecurity but also on the economic opportunities offered by the cyber domain. This is consistent with the approach chosen for the strengthening of our national cybersecurity. The One conference is a two day conference consisting of a plenary program and various breakout sessions. Technical topics such as malware detection, incident response, law enforcement cases and less technical subjects, such as public-private partnerships, are discussed. Attention is also given to research from industry and academia.
