The Hague, Netherlands | MAY 19 - 20, 2020



Awareness V Den Haag will be organised in collaboration with Europol, the official host of the event at its headquarters in The Hague, Netherlands. The symposium will provide a platform to present and discuss the best practices for cybersecurity awareness campaign deployment at national and transnational levels. The event will also spotlight research in behavioral factors that contribute to cybercrime’s success and suggest ways to mitigate cybercrime by giving people the skills and knowledge to better protect themselves.

The symposium aims to identify successful strategies for cybersecurity awareness campaign as well as messaging strategies as fundamental components of cybercrime prevention. Awareness V will present best-of-class resources for deployment of national and globalised cybersecurity awareness campaigns – resources that delegates can use today.

Europol, STOP. THINK. CONNECT, APWG.EU, and its correspondents worldwide are organising the largest global cybercrime prevention effort, unifying and advocating the development of effective awareness programs. For the first time, the event will provide a common discussion framework with law enforcement participation.
