The Netherlands Police Academy and the Thorbecke Academy of NHL Stenden University of Applied Sciences are joining forces. The parties will collaborate more on digital resilience in a professorship. Director Leonard Kok of the Netherlands Police Academy and Executive Board member Marc Otto of NHL Stenden signed the agreement. That happened on Friday in Apeldoorn. The goal is to do more research together and share knowledge. To contribute more strongly to increased digital resilience in society.

Traditional crime has been shifting to online crime for a number of years. The number of victims is increasing, also because many citizens and organizations are not aware of digital risks. We must therefore do more to ensure that people know the risks and change their behavior. That is why better cooperation is important.

As a result, the Thorbecke Academy and the Netherlands Police Academy together lay the foundation. To improve the digital resilience of citizens and organizations. It should also ensure that the police can better tackle online crime. This is necessary in a society that is increasingly digital.

The shared use of knowledge, resources and expertise will not only enrich education and professional practice. But also influence how attentive citizens and organizations are to digital threats. It also strengthens knowledge and skills for police work in a digital society.
