Press Release: The UK-NL Cyber-FinTech Summit comes to The Hague on 20 Feb 2020.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

The British Embassy The Hague, the Netherlands Enterprise Agency and Holland FinTech will co-host the UK-NL Cyber Fintech Summit (CFS2020) on 20 February at the New Babylon Conference Centre in The Hague.

Featured speakers include Benoît Legrand (Chief Innovation Officer, ING), Peter Wilson (HM Ambassador to the Netherlands), Henry Pearson (the UK Cyber Ambassador) and Eleanor Boekholt-O’Sullivan (Commander of the Netherlands Cyber Command). The CFS2020 will highlight the strong bilateral relationship between the United Kingdom and the Netherlands in cyber security, financial services, entrepreneurship and innovation.

An expected 1000 attendees from business, academia and government will connect, join workshop sessions and pitch their solutions. The event will showcase the very best technologies the UK and the Netherlands have to offer, with a delegation of more than 100 startups having confirmed their attendance.

The contribution of entrepreneurs and innovators is indispensable in a time of growing cybersecurity threats. Cybersecurity affects the full cross-section society: government and business, communities and individuals. We need to defend ourselves against malicious cyber-operations and remain at the cutting edge of cyber expertise and innovation. Dutch and British societies are both faced with the same challenges, making it more important than ever to build connections and confront the threat together.

More information about the event is available at https://uktech.nl/cfs2020. Press accreditations are available at tech.nl@fco.gov.uk, no later than 19 February at 5pm. The UK’s Cyber Ambassador, Dr. Henry Pearson, is available for interviews.
