European Cybersecurity Strategy: Fostering the SME ecosystem

Home » News » European Cybersecurity Strategy: Fostering the SME ecosystem partner Digital SME Alliance, in collaboration with the European CyberSecurity Organisation (ECSO) has published a Position Paper on "European Cybersecurity Strategy: Fostering the SME ecosystem".

The position paper provides an overview of measures to facilitate SMEs’ cybersecurity ecosystem, and contributes to boosting the offer and the demand for SMEs’ cybersecurity solutions.

Key proposals include:

  • the establishment of European cybersecurity SMEs HUB to connect SMEs and foster their ad hoc cooperation on specific projects
  • the identification of ways to make procurers more aware of SME solutions, such as a ‘EU trusted solution’ label, as well as the disclosure of tenderers supply chain in order to make European SME suppliers more visible to procurers
  • the development of territorial cooperation strategy as one of the crucial elements to help SMEs having access to cybersecurity protection measures

The position also proposes the review of the H2020 funding mechanisms, including the SME Instrument, as to make them more suitable for SMEs.

Future Events

Dedicated to exchanges of views and professional meetings, the International Cybersecurity Forum (FIC) has become the leading European event on cybersecurity security and digital trust. Its originality is to mix a forum, to foster reflection and exchanges among the European cybersecurity ecosystem, and a trade fair for buyers and suppliers of cybersecurity solutions to meet and network.

28/01/2020 to 30/01/2020 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.
