On Monday 15 June, 12 new partners were officially introduced during the New Partner e-meeting on Microsoft Teams, The meeting is a digital version of the regular organised New Partner Lunch. The partner organisations introduced differ from cybersecurity, to forensics to national security. Joris den Bruinen, General Director of HSD, welcomed the partners shortly together with Head of Innovation Liaison Saskia Noordewier.
The new partners that were present during the meeting were CyberDevOps, CFLW Cyber Strategies, Nixu, Oddity.ai, PRW Consulting, QuTech, The Hague Tech, Emudhra B.V., Thycotic, Splendo, YoungCapital NEXT & Angoka Limited. These partners have joined the HSD community in the last half-year. The partners were given the opportunity to give a 1-3-minute pitch to introduce themselves.
Because we still consider it important that new partners have the opportunity to present themselves, we arranged a digital version of the partner lunch called "New Partner E-Meeting" on Monday 15 June 2020.
HSD organises the New Partner Lunch several times a year to introduce new partners. However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this physical lunch was not able to take place this year yet. The New Partner e-meeting is therefore a solution to still give new partners the opportunity to introduce themselves, represent their organisation and make eventual connections with the other new partners.
It is really crucial to have these networks and access to, for example, partners for international business. Something HSD was the key place for. Meeting new people that can add a piece of the puzzle that completes a complex solution. - Mark van Staalduinen, CyberDevOps and CFLW Cyber Strategies
The added value for HSD is that I believe that not one company can cover all the challenges that our customers have. So, you need a legal system of partners to deliver the proper services to the customers as well as to make them more resilient on the cybersecurity side. - Marcel van Leent, Nixu
