CyberSec4Europe Launch Event


As EU institutions discuss the EC proposal for a regulation establishing the European Cybersecurity Industrial, Technology and Research Competence Centre and the Network of National Coordination Centres, four pilot projects are starting to experiment on some core building blocks.

These include cybersecurity governance in Europe, the application of cybersecurity research to critical industry sectors, the availability, evaluation and usage of open tools for cybersecurity, and the creation of a cybersecurity research roadmap.

CyberSec4Europe is one of those pilots and is delighted to invite you to an evening celebrating the start of the project, featuring posters on vertical application area tasks (WP 5) and open security (WP 7).

The CyberSec4Europe Launch Event will be held on 26/02/2019 at Representation of the State of Hessen to the EU, Rue Montoyer 21, 1000 Brussels.

Cyber Insurance and its Contribution to Cyber Risk Mitigation - Leiden March 25-29
25/03/2019 to 29/03/2019

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.
