On 22 October 2012 our next networking drink around a topical issue will take place at the Privacy First office in the former building of de Volkskrant newspaper in Amsterdam. As a follow-up to the recent lecture by the Head of the Dutch General Intelligence and Security Service (AIVD) Rob Bertholee, we have invited Wil van Gemert to further expand on the theme of cyber security. Mr. Van Gemert is Director Cyber Security of the NCTV, the National Coordinator for Security and Counterterrorism and he will prepare a lecture at the interface of security and privacy in cyberspace. What exactly is cyber security and what are the current challenges and problems in this area? What role does the government fulfil with regard to developments in cyber security? And what is the best way to strike a balance between privacy and security? Investigative journalist Brenno de Winter will moderate the discussion. During the lecture there will be plenty of opportunity for questions and discussion with the audience. Afterwards we will go for a drink in café-restaurant Canvas where DJ Wong and DJ Broky B will take care of the music.
Date: Monday 22 October 2012, starting time 19.30h. The doors will be opened at 19.00h.
Location: Wibautstraat 150, 1091 GR Amsterdam. The lecture and discussion will be held at ground level (Big Room), afterwards the informal party will take place at the 7th floor (Canvas). An itinerary can be found here.
