Global Conference on CyberSpace 

16 - 17 April 2015


Deliverables One Conference input for GCCS2015

The two-day cybersecurity conference of the National Cyber Security Center (NCSC), part of the National Coordinator for Counterterrorism and Security (NCTV), has been closed on Tuesday afternoon by Wilma van Dijk, director cyber security. The One Conference is a precursor to the Global Conference on Cyberspace (GCCS). In her closing of the One Conference, Wilma van Dijk mentioned three outcomes that the Netherlands will discuss with international partners at the GCCS2015.

1)   Anti-spoofing

Spoofing is falsifying IP-addresses in order to pose as someone else online. Spoofing is a form of internet fraude. The NCSC, the Internet Society ISOC, KPN and Digital Infrastructure Netherlands are currently working together against spoofing. These organizations collect and connect initiatives and work on developments with the international CERT network towards norms and standards. These will be discused in the GCCS2015 session "Towards 21st century internet standards".

2)   Responsible disclosure guide

Based on experience with ethical hacking and responsible disclosure, the NCSC has made a best practice guide. The guide is published on the website of the NCSC and this website. Ethical hacking is a central issue at both conferences.

3)   CERT-maturity

Computer Emergency Response Teams work together nationally and internationally to improve cybersecurity. State secretary Dijkhoff of Security and Justice referred to CERTs during his opening of the One Conference. He called CERTs indispensable in the global approach to cybersecurity. The NCSC has made a CERT maturity kit to assist other CERTs to reach a higher level of maturity. The GCCS 2015 will also launch an initiative for capacity building worldwide.

These and many other issues will be discussed during the GCCS 2015.


After the GCCS, cybersecurity will be a priority issue during the Dutch presidency of the EU in 2016.
