ACCSS (pronounced as ‘access’ and short for ACademic Cyber Security Society), is the association for scientists from all academic institutions in the Netherlands (in Dutch Wetenschappelijk Onderzoek) who are active in the broad field of cybersecurity in the Netherlands.

Through ACCSS, we come together to maximize the contribution of cybersecurity research to society through three main goals: 

  1. We form a network with and for cyber security scientists from all scientific disciplines and academic institutions in the Netherlands.
  2. We serve as a gateway through which public and private parties can easily find and connect with cyber security scientists in the Netherlands.
  3. We act as advocates and representative for cyber security scientists in the Netherlands to help articulate views and to facilitate contributions into public policy that require cyber security expertise.
