The "Strategic Autonomy and Cybersecurity in the Netherlands" report published on February 25 by the Dutch Cyber Security Council (CSR) states that "the challenges and threats to strategic autonomy in cybersecurity are too important not to be viewed from a broad perspective and be taken up at the top. "
Indeed, the rapid spread of the multifaceted concept of strategic autonomy across Europe, particularly in the Netherlands and France, has been catalyzed by recent major statements from European public leaders and institutions, namely Thierry Breton, as mentioned above, French President Macron who announced a billion euros investment plan for cybersecurity, or the encouraging development of the European sovereign cloud GAIA-X. Digital trust challenges have now reached the top priorities in the political agendas!
In the wake of these latest developments, Dutch and French CISOs, experts and officials will give their take on the cybersecurity and strategic autonomy challenges faced by Europe.
