The state government inked a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Hague Security Delta here on Friday. The Hague is a cluster in Netherland where businesses, governments, knowledge institutions work together in the area of cyber security.
The Vice-Mayor of the city Hague Klein, officials from the embassy and Telangana IT secretary Jayesh Ranjan signed the MoU.
Representatives from various institutions who work in cyber security from Telangana also attended. As part of this initiative, the state government will work closely with the Hague Security Delta to share the knowledge in cyber security, security best practices and to combat cyber threats and vulnerabilities.
Klein said that The Netherlands, and in particular the Hague has created a niche for itself in the field of safety and security.
“We shall be happy to join forces with companies, knowledge institutes and the government bodies in dealing with the growing challenges in the domain of cyber security, besides offering input for the legal and regulatory framework,” Klein said.
With a reputation as International City of Peace and Justice, the Hague is highly committed towards cooperation and exchange of knowledge and experience. Moreover, it has a large number of legal organizations within the city ambit.
The Hague and India have already been cooperating on the theme ‘Peace and Justice’; cyber security is a logical extension of that collaboration.
