Hispeed Tour – Top sectors in The Hague
These parallel sessions will zoom into three sectors that make up our international city. Keynote speakers will address the various streams within each sector and highlight current trends and opportunities.
The Hague (your) Business City
Sexy Security Delta
As a growing player in the field of security, The Hague is expanding its scope and level of expertise. We can safely say security is no longer for the silent professor X behind the laptop, it is a booming, sexy field with high tech gadgets and innovation on various levels with dimensions that may surprise you. The Hague Security Delta (HSD) may be called “the Security Port to Europe: the largest and continuously growing network of businesses, governments and knowledge institutes in Europe focused on security”. HSD specializes in the fields of national, urban and cyber security, protection of critical infrastructures and forensics. Additionally, they aim to create “a thriving and innovative security network and expect, through close cooperation and innovation, to triple businesses, employees, students and turnover by 2025.”
The Hispeed Tour will provide a brief introduction to the HSD in particular and the security sector in general. Current trends and professional opportunities will be discussed. A moderated Q/A session will address questions that shed light on the (inter)national trends, the main challenges and ways to overcome them, and the required skill-sets to enter this field.
