International developments are increasingly difficult to predict and control. As a result, the threats posed against the Dutch society are diverse and often complex.

In 2019 the General Intelligence and Security Service (Algemene Inlichtingen- en Veiligheidsdienst, AIVD) observed how more and more countries were attempting to gain influence over Dutch interests. Our country is one of the most economically, scientifically, and technologically advanced countries in the world.

As a result the Netherlands is an attractive target for digital espionage and influencing.
