Thank you for joining us!
Speakers' presentations are available now.
The new digital realm is rewriting the rules of businesses where innovative technologies have a prominent role in overall value creation. Data-related activities are not only a central feature of the production process but a key aspect of economic activity. There is not any doubt that the digital era is creating numerous new opportunities for the economy and society but, at the same time, introducing new challenges.
According to the 2021 World Economic Forum's Global Risks Report, cyber risks continue ranking among global risks. Whereas the COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated technological adoption, it has also exposed cyber vulnerabilities, the lack of agile solutions to dire problems, as well as exacerbating the tech inequalities within and between societies.
However, good news is on the horizon. Thanks to the introduction of new architectures and patterns, the ICT industry is bringing more agility in the creation and management of new products and digital services that can easily be combined together to create more complex business chains. Their growing complexity and multi-domain nature make these systems even more vulnerable to security breaches and cyber-attacks.
To discuss the challenges and opportunities of cybersecurity, FIWARE, supported by the GUARD Project and Cyberwatching.eu, is bringing together cybersecurity experts to review innovative, integrated, and holistic approaches for a secure and trusted Digital Single Market, outlining the principles that are guiding the EU action in this domain.
Have you ever received an SMS to your smartphone that asked you to follow a link for more information? It could be a delivery notice from an online store or postal service, or a notification of a new voicemail. Maybe the SMS seemed a bit off, and you might have wondered whether you should click the link or not. But you wanted to know where your parcel is or who left a message, so you went on and clicked it anyway.
