cyberwatching.eu has collaborated with the SME community and various SME Associations around Europe. The Marketplace and its transition to become ECSO's SME Hub is evidence of how the project has a provided a tangible output that will be sustained by ECSO as an essential part of their outreach activities to European SMEs. Similarly, the SME end-user club provides evidence of uptake of EU innovation. Following continuous SME needs assessment and user experience feedback, these two outputs have closely merged into a unified cyberwatching.eu service offer to SMEs, offering multiple SME tools and services ‘under one roof’.
“SMEs have a vital role to play in the development of Europe’s cybersecurity capacities and digital sovereignty. SMEs make up the backbone of the European economy, accounting for 99% of businesses in Europe. A clear need for reliable and trusted self-assessment resources for SMEs to understand the GDPR and their cybersecurity posture was identified early in the project and then addressed successfully” Sebastiano Toffaletti, Secretary-General, European DIGITAL SME Alliance and cyberwatching.eu partner
We have achieved many exciting and interesting results during the SOCCRATES project, highlighted in many dissemination activities. At this point in time, however, the project will soon be finalized. That is why in this final SOCCRATES webinar, we want to focus on how we have exploited or plan to exploit these results, to ensure a continuous impact also after the project has ended. As a starting point, we will provide a short demonstration of the SOCCRATES pilot platform, following one of the SOCCRATES use cases.
