Please briefly describe the results your project achieved so far
AEGIS has established the Cybersecurity Reflection Group EU-US, a multi-stakeholder collaboration platform with two Working Groups: the Cybersecurity and Privacy R&I WG and the Cybersecurity and Privacy Policies WG.
The Working Groups bring together high-level experts from both sides of the Atlantic to address specific issues on cybersecurity and privacy, including the identification of common approaches in addressing cybersecurity and privacy challenges from an R&I as well as a governance and institutional perspective.
With input from the Cybersecurity Reflection Group, AEGIS has developed a series of high-impact publications that analyze the EU and US cybersecurity landscapes and provide recommendations to increase transatlantic cooperation.
What are the next steps for your project?
Although the AEGIS project has finished, the consortium will continue to raise awareness on EU-US issues in cybersecurity and privacy. In addition, the Cybersecurity Reflection Group EU-US will continue to be active and exchange opinions on transatlantic developments in cybersecurity.
