AEGIS - Accelerating EU-US Dialogue in Cybersecurity and Privacy

AEGIS is a Horizon 2020 project focusing on EU-US cybersecurity and privacy dialogue.

AEGIS provides support to EU-US ongoing dialogues and discussions related to cybersecurity and privacy by providing a practical and effective international collaboration platform engaged in: (a) discussing progress and priorities; (b) setting the cybersecurity and privacy research agendas to be pursued at an international level; and (c) coordinating the sharing of policies and best practices, standards, test facilities, knowledge and experience in order to stimulate cooperation around cybersecurity and privacy research and innovation approaches and thus contribute in shaping the future global cybersecurity landscape. 

Their Approach

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. Input from the Working Groups will feed AEGIS White Papers on Cybersecurity Policies and Research and Innovation.
AEGIS is mapping the landscape of cybersecurity and privacy in Europe and the US, including a common taxonomy EU-US that is the basis to identify the most viable areas for future EU-US cooperation in cybersecurity and privacy R&I.

Their Result

Through the Cybersecurity Reflection Group EU-US, AEGIS will deliver White Papers on Cybersecurity Policies and Research and Innovation in Cybersecurity, including recommendations to enhance evolving dialogues in cybersecurity and privacy, and thus significantly contribute to reinforce the political and technological framework for possible EU-US cooperation in cybersecurity and privacy R&I.
AEGIS will continue collaboration with project and initiatives related to cybersecurity and privacy in Europe and the US.
