The National Cyber Security Research Agenda (NCSRA-III) describes cybersecurity research challenges around five pillars, which together support cyber security research and development in the Netherlands. These pillars are: Design, Defend, Attack, Governance and Privacy. Previous agendas were more disciplinary in nature. The division into pillars that has now been chosen will bring scientific disciplines together. They give direction to research and enable interdisciplinary collaboration. For example, each pillar needs contributions from computer science, engineering, social sciences and humanities.
The aim is to contribute to the cybersecurity of various top sectors and NWA tracks by implementing a single national cybersecurity research agenda.
