Cybersecurity certification and standards has been a central theme running through the cyberwatching.eu project and are reflected in these reports. They go hand in hand in addressing the issue of trust with respect to the view of the users and the European citizens. Traditional methods of certification address systemic approaches and must be adapted to the fast-evolving realm of cybersecurity. Inevitably, industry led initiatives have been the most prevalent, but often these are driven by the largest industry and research players, such that the standards and certification solutions developed are not always suitable for SMEs (Small and Medium Enterprise) which comprise a large proportion of the innovations going forward currently.
In the last few years, cyber security has become more of a priority for all types of organisations than ever before.
The European Cybersecurity Competence Centre (ECCC), with the support of ECCO, launches “The Info Days”, a series of events to share information on important European calls and funding opportunities. The second event, organised in cooperation with the Swedish National Coordination Centre, will be held on 16 June 14:00 – 16:00 in Stockholm, as a side event of the Digital Assembly(15 – 16 June).
