Standardisation reports

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.

D3.8 From Research to Standards in Cybersecurity

Cyberwatching.eu has been on the forefront of addressing the key issue of standards (and that issue is trust), via the in-project development of the Light Cybersecurity Label, which is a key result of this project that will “live on” well beyond the lifetime of cyberwatching.eu.

D3.3 White Paper on cybersecurity standard gap analysis

The focus of this deliverable is to address the issue, with a white paper, of identifying the gaps in cybersecurity standards (and hence also certification). This is done using the methodology of focussed desk research first and foremost in order to gather together and to summarize all of the key efforts that have gone before. We thereafter survey the cybersecurity research, industry, public sector and user communities in order to get inputs into identifying the perceived gaps.


The Tech.eu Summit gathered over a thousand tech enthousiasts to Brussels, Belgium, on 17 May 2022. GEIGER was present at the expo hall, introducing the solution to the visitors at its booth, and giving them a sneak peak to the alpha version of the GEIGER app.

Future Events

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.
