What is the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC)?

The NCSC is part of the Ministry of Justice and Security. To limit the consequences of serious cyber incidents beyond national borders, the NCSC has been designated as the national contact point for EU Member States on behalf of the Netherlands. This means that when the NCSC receives a report that is also relevant for other countries, this operational information is shared with the contact point in other Member States. Under the Network and Information Systems Security Act (Wbni), the NCSC's tasks include the following: ● To assist vital providers and parts of the government in taking measures to safeguard the continuity of their services; to inform and advise on threats and incidents to the network and information systems of vital providers and the central government to carry out analyses and technical investigations into threats and incidents or indications of them The possible processing of a voluntary report of an incident by an organisation that is not part of the vital providers or parts of central government; ● Sharing information with organisations whose task it is to inform other organisations or the public about threats and incidents, and computer crisis teams.
