On 22 May, the ‘Human Capital Agenda Security 2019-2022’ (HCA Security) was published by HSD Office. The goal of the agenda is to tackle the discrepancies in the labour market by improving the qualitative and quantitative match between demand and supply of security personnel. Access to talent is a crucial prerequisite for the creation of innovative security solutions and the growth of the security sector. 


This agenda has been developed in cooperation with many partners and builds on the results of the 'Human Capital Actionagenda Cybersecurity 2016-2018'. The scope of the agenda has grown from cybersecurity to the broader field of security and from the province of South Holland to the Netherlands, although this topic and region remain crucial pillars for security in The Netherlands.


Building on the positive experience of the approach of the previous agenda, we will continue working on two tracks. Track 1 is focussed on improving the connection between education and labour market/employers. Track 2 focussed on attracting and developing talent.
