Cybersecurity, bridging R&I with the business world

Date: 
25/10/2017

European DIGITAL SME Alliance, together with cyberwatching.eu, is holding an SME workshop in Leon, Spain. This workshop is held in the framework of the International Meeting on Information Security (11ENISE) organised by the Spanish National Cybersecurity Institute.

Take-aways: This workshop will present tools for cybersecurity companies to use publicly funded R&I solutions in order to innovate and build new products.

Context: while global demand for cybersecurity and privacy solutions is booming, technologies are innovating at ever-increasing pace. Thus, only vendors that manage to keep up with a speed of such innovations will remain competitive in the market. The Business community cannot afford to stay behind the newest R&I developments, hence, this workshop demonstrates how effectively the two can be linked.

Audience: SME cybersecurity vendors, cybersecurity researchers, representatives of the public sector
