Target Audience

All possible target groups


The Netherlands is one of a select group of countries with the highest number of internet connections. And more people use internet banking here than in any other country in Europe. We are online everywhere, all the time. This gives the Netherlands a head start, creating new opportunities for innovation and economic growth. It also means that we all have to be particularly aware of the dangers and risks. That is why the campaign Alert Online exists.

Alert Online is aimed at citizens, independent entrepreneurs, companies, organisations and their staff. A broad target group. Because people often use the internet both for work and private purposes and these two areas increasingly overlap. Working on their home computer for example, or going on Facebook using the cell phone from their work. This exposes people and organisations to such risks as viruses, files accidentally ending up on the street, or falling prey to fraudsters and cybercriminals.

By drawing attention to the various initiatives in the field of cyber security in the Netherlands, we can take cyber security expertise in our society to a higher level.
