On October 4th 2016 NLnet foundation together with its partners in DINL (AMS-ix, DDA, DHPA, ISPConnect, SIDN, VvR, Nederland-ICT and SURFnet) is organising the third edition of the conference "Holland Strikes Back". By joining forces they are able to present an overview of the current issues in cyber security in one event.

During the third edition of Holland Strikes Back a host of prominent speakers will present their analysis of the most prominent or remarkable cyber attacks in recent times. Among others Patricia Zorko (deputy NCTV), Dr. Melanie Rieback (Radically Open Security), Erik de Jong (Fox-IT), dr. Ricardo de Oliveira Schmidt (University of Twente) and Michiel Leenaars (NLnet) will talk about subjects such as spearfishing, bank-robbery, DDoS attacks, and ransomware, all moderated by Brenno De Winter.

What kind of cyber attacks hit organisations and individuals? Who is behind these attacks, and how do they work? What motives them? These kind of questions are central to the event, states Marc Gauw, general director of NLnet foundation, We've invited professionals and stakeholders that have had actual experience with real security incidents and asked them to tell us which measures have been taken based on these incidents, and which measures they think are still required.

Already 300 visitors have registered to attend the event, which will be held at the Louwman Museum in The Hague (NL).

Holland Strikes Back is part of Alert Online, the national awareness campaign for cyber prevention from the Ministry of Security and Justice. For more information and to sign up we refer to
