Exploration mission | Cybersecurity in Sweden

Dutch cyber companies are invited to sign up for the first physical reconnaissance mission on cybersecurity in Sweden.

Sweden is one of the world leaders when it comes to digital skills. In the field of cybersecurity, however, the position is modest. The general need for cybersecurity knowledge, skills and implementation is enormous. Read more about the cybersecurity market in Sweden here.

After several roundtable discussions and webinars, the Dutch Embassy in Sweden, the Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RVO), Security Delta (HSD) and InnovationQuarter are pleased to invite you to the first physical reconnaissance mission Cybersecurity Sweden:

Dates:          Thursday 10 November & Friday 11 November 2022
Location:    Stockholm, Sweden
Costs:         €500,- per company incl. VAT (excl. travel and accomodation)

Draft Program

This exploratory mission enables Dutch cyber companies to explore the opportunities in the Swedish market. In addition, it provides an opportunity to establish initial contacts between Swedish stakeholders and the Dutch cybersecurity cluster. A provisional program has been put together that will be further elaborated in consultation with the participating companies.

Thursday 10 November
The main activity on this day is a visit to Radar Summit, a one-day IT security conference where the main stakeholders from Sweden come together (see attachment for dummy list of potential partners and customers).

  • The Dutch delegation is introduced to Swedish visitors by means of a small stand.
  • In the evening there will be a private network dinner with Swedish cybersecurity experts and other invited guests who can introduce the Dutch delegation to their network and provide insight into the Swedish IT security market.

Friday 11 November
Friday will be devoted to a further deep dive in Sweden and the local initiatives in the field of cybersecurity.

  • During a network breakfast, local stakeholders give presentations on the latest developments in the Swedish IT security market and share their local knowledge and expertise with the delegation members in a small setting.
  • The delegation will visit one or more (cybersecurity) companies and/or knowledge institutes in the region.

Please note that you can optionally visit the IT security conference Cloud Security Day in Stockholm on Wednesday 9 November. This conference is not an official part of the programme, but is visited by the mission organizers to explore and strengthen the local network.
