Major international developments and breakthroughs in security originate in The Hague region. That is because major players within this sector have made The Hague their home. International organisations such as the NATO Communications and Information (NCI) Agency (a key pillar of the NATO Secretary General’s Smart Defence and Connected Forces initiatives) and Europol, the European Union’s law enforcement agency, are located in this city. And The Hague houses the largest security cluster in Europe: The Hague Security Delta (HSD).
The Hague Security Delta
In some 400 different organisations, more than 15,000 people work together in The Hague Security Delta to increase security around the globe, with a particular focus on cyber security.
