What does the NCTV do?

The NCTV’s main tasks are:

  • analysing and reducing identified threats
  • providing surveillance and protection for persons, property, services, events and vital sectors
  • ensuring cyber security
  • making property, individuals, sectors and networks more resistant to threats
  • ensuring effective crisis management and crisis communication.

Combining these tasks into a single organisation makes the government more effective in these areas. The NCTV and its staff fall under the responsibility of the Minister of Justice and Security. For management and organisational purposes, the NCTV comes under the aegis of the Ministry of Justice and Security, functioning in a similar way to a directorate-general.
