Cyberwatching.eu is the European observatory of research and innovation in the field of cybersecurity and privacy. Funded under the European Commission's H2020 programme, this brand-new project will contribute to making the Digital Single Market a safer and more trusted by promoting the uptake and understanding of cutting-edge cybersecurity and privacy services which emerge from Research and Innovation initiatives across Europe. First to benefit are SMEs who will have unlimited access to a marketplace and catalogue of new services that can improve their services and ensure that cybersecurity becomes a unique selling point for them.
In its four-year lifetime, Cyberwatching.eu will also play a key role in policy discussions. In its mission to democratise cybersecurity for all, the project directly responds to the objectives of the recently signed contractual Public-Private Partnership on cybersecurity (c-PPP) which has ambition of becoming the reference framework for the R&I initiatives, both Nationally and across Europe.
www.cyberwatching.eu, will become the online hub for R&I in cybersecurity & privacy in Europe offering European citizens access to innovative and trustworthy ICT products, services and software which take fundamental rights, such as privacy, into consideration.

An “OBSERVATORY” of all cybersecurity & privacy initiatives, collecting the most important on-going activities and achievements in these two fields
An ONLINE CATALOGUE OF SERVICE, which will harmoniously collect all the initiatives, making them visible, accessible and usable from the European SMEs
An interactive MARKETPLACE, showcasing EU excellence in cybersecurity and privacy services
An SMEs END USERS’ CLUB, a validation lab where the EU research outcomes will be tested practically and potentially implemented by SMEs.
Cyberwatching.eu involves a variety of partners covering key sectors:
Coordinated by Trust-IT, experts in communication & marketing for ICT and cybersecurity & privacy, the project also includes the University of Oxford’s Oxford eResearch Centre, experts in cybersecuirty clustering and mapping activities; legal and privacy expertise in the form of ICT Legal; the Digital SME Alliance, representing a broad network of European SME associations; CONCEPTIVITY, a Swiss SMEs specialised in cybersecurity-related standardisation and certification; the Spanish cyber-cluster AEI Ciberseguridad, (together with their partner CITIC); and finally the cyberinsurance professionals AON.
Europe is stepping up its protection against cybersecurity threats, and is discussing a new structure of pool of expertise which will help secure the digital single market and increase the EU’s autonomy in the area of cybersecurity.
Europe is currently working on the establishment of a top knowledge base for cybersecurity and a network of national cybersecurity coordination centres called the European Cybersecurity Industrial, Technology and Research Centre and the Network of National Coordination Centres.
The rise in both the scale and severity of recent cyberattacks demands new thinking about cybersecurity risk and the mitigation and transfer of that risk. Cyber insurance is one potential way to manage risk by transferring damage liability, but the cyber insurance market is immature and the understanding and actuarial knowledge of cyber-risk is currently underdeveloped.
