ACCSS (pronounced as ‘access’ and short for ACademic Cyber Security Society), is the association for scientists who are active in the field of cybersecurity in the Netherlands, both in the natural sciences as well as from the alpha and gamma sciences.

The new association has the following goals:

  1. It acts as the hub of the network of all cyber security scientists in the Netherlands;
  2. It acts as a gateway for public and private parties who want to contact cyber security scientists in the Netherlands; of alpha, beta and gamma signature; and
  3. It acts as mouthpiece and representative of cyber security scientists in the Netherlands to highlight shared positions and to provide input in policy processes where expertise on cyber security is required.

The association will position itself as an unambiguous and recognizable point of contact and as a representative of science within the new collaboration platform cyber security that can be seen as the successor to dcypher.
