National and regional Public Administrations

The biggest challenges to face

  • Each state or local government must take action to mitigate cybersecurity risk. In order to do so, they should always have a ready-to-apply response plan in case a breach should occur.
  • Increasing cyber-risk with a related socio-economic impact. Whilst high-profile cases of data breaches to healthcare or services facilities hit the headlines, cyber threats are presenting a considerable and growing risk to public organizations and bodies at all levels.
  • Ensure full compliance with sensitive and personal data protection with respect to citizens and persons.

Which are the most important benefits of joining Cyberwatching.eu?

  • A platform to adequately educate technical and non-technical decision makers on CS&P best practices.
  • Easy access to cutting-edge CS&P products, services and solutions through the Marketplace.
  • A duly completed Technology Radar Report including guidelines for both industry and public sector on the state of the art CS&P technology, policies and standards.
  • A solid guidance on effective CS&P strategy implementation and compliance. This is going to include the “Cybersecurity and Privacy Roadmap”, a tool that will pave the way for public sector and industry to fully comply with standards and regulations while pointing out socio-economic advantages. This entails a stronger support to the development of a more secure cyber industrial strategy, making the EU a leader in the cybersecurity and privacy field.

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.
