Cyber-resilience: how resilient are we, actually?

Please note: this event will be held in Dutch

As of November 2018, the Dutch Law “Wet Beveiliging Netwerk- en Informatiesystemen (WBNI)” was initiated. WBNI is the translation of the European “directive on Security of Network and Information Systems”, the NIS-directive. This directive enhances the security on the Internet for Europe by enhancing resilience and limiting the negative results following cyberincidents.

Our Chapter therefore dedicates our next event to “Cyber-resilience”. We will investigate how resilient The Netherlands actually is during a large cyberthreat. How would our utility companies and digital infrastructures perform, what are, or should be, focal points for monitoring and enforcement.

In this presentation explained what this means in practice, what is expected of these organizations and how Agentschap Telecom will oversee this.

19:15 Collaborative DDoS Mitigation

Cristian Hesselman – head of SIDN labs

Banks and government agencies in the Netherlands repeatedly suffered from outages in the as a result of relatively small DDoS attacks. This is worrisome, because DDoS attacks will only get bigger and more complex, for instance as a result of the emerging “Internet of Things”. This presentation is about a proactive and collaborative DDoS mitigation strategy for the Dutch critical infrastructure, which revolves around providers of critical services continually collecting information on potential and active DDoS sources and automatically sharing this information with other providers.
