On 14th November joined “Cybersecurity For Europe 2019” organized by the CyberSec4Europe project.

CyberSec4Europe is one of the four large scale projects funded by the European Commission’sDG CNECT to pilot the key building blocks of the upcoming regulation, establishing a new European cybersecurity industrial, technology and research competence network and centre.

Nicholas Ferguson, as coordinator of, played an active role on the panel session entitled “Recommendations for Cybersecurity Research and Innovation” highlighting key results of the project such as the European Project Radar.

Thanks to a number of activities spanning from a specific cybersecurity taxonomy definition, to the Market Technology Readiness Level self-assessment evaluation as well as analysis of lifecycle maturity patterns, the European Project Radar is able to map and visualize the state of the art of cybersecurity and privacy R&I projects as a means to maintain oversight of the larger European Cybersecurity research landscape.

The 150 projects currently included in the radar are grouped by research themes and colour-coded to show their position in the project lifecycle. The radar allows making swift yet statistically sound statements on the state of the art of the European cybersecurity and privacy research landscape.

To fully close the circle on its mission to become THE European observatory of R&I in the field of cybersecurity and privacy, is also allocating to each project a dedicated space in its Project Hub in which they can autonomously update information about project status, key outputs, demos and best practices, therefore facilitating information transfer, communication and cross-pollination.


Cyberwatching will join FIC2020 with two key initiatives aiming at raising awareness on cybersecurity and bringing into the spotlight key services, tools and solutions for European SMEs that can help them react to online threats and become more cybersecure.

Future Events

The Annual Computer Security Applications Conference (ACSAC) will be held in San Juan, Puerto Rico on 9-13 December 2019. 

09/12/2019 to 13/12/2019 is going to present its cybersecurity training solution at a joint information stand at FIC 2020, in Lille (France), on 28-30 January 2020.

Cybersecurity has become a major priority for organisations to protect themselves against cyberattacks, and due to the rising concerns about data risks to information security, companies of all sizes, and public sector organisations around Europe need trained professionals to help fill skills gap, key for developing cybersecurity processes.
