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 cyber security 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.

In 2019 the One Conference has become a three day conference. Made possible in cooperation with the city of The Hague. In allignment with the One Conference, the city aims to stimulate the exchange of cyber security knowledge, ideas and innovations for a more secure future.

The One Conference consists of a plenary program, various breakout sessions and an Innovation Floor. 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.

Innovation Floor

A novelty for the One Conference 2019 is the organization of an Innovation Floor. During three days, in close collaboration with the city of The Hague, a maximum of 15 organizations will be offered the opportunity to present their cyber security innovations.

Proposals for participation at the Innovation Floor must comply to the theme of the One Conference of this year.
