In our increasingly interconnected world, cyber threats and incidents are heading the agenda’s of politicians, policy makers, CIO’s and civilians worldwide. The on-going digitisation of society creates new opportunities but also related risks and dilemmas. In order to respond to these new demands from our digitised society, qualified experts are needed to tackle these challenges.

The Cyber Security Academy, therefore, proudly and enthusiastically announces that on 8 February the second cohort of Master of Science (MSc) graduates in Cyber Security in The Netherlands will graduate at the Campus of The Hague Security Delta (HSD), the national innovation centre in The Hague and home of the leading security cluster in Europe.

Professionals (computer scientists, lawyers, policy makers) from a variety of public and private organisations celebrate their successful completion of the innovative and multidisciplinary master programme, with a seminar and a ceremony of celebration.


At the seminar in the morning, several students will elaborate on their thesis project. Innovative insights and solutions for cyber security challenges are being presented such as designing a Unified Kill Chain for analyzing, comparing and defending against cyber attacks, a study to broaden the perspective on cyber security risk management by looking at different theories of risk, a study on risk management and the quantum threat and a study on the Potential of Artificial Intelligence to Take on Cybersecurity Tasks.

The graduation ceremony in the afternoon will be introduced by Jan van den Berg, professor in Cyber Security at Leiden University/Delft University of Technology. Following this introduction, graduates will receive their diploma in a ceremony of celebration.
