CyberSec4Europe (Cyber Security for Europe) is a research-based consortium with 43 partners from 22 EU Member States and Associated Countries, as well as over 40 Associate partners from 16 countries. As a pilot for the Cybersecurity Competence Network, the project is testing and demonstrating potential governance structures for the Network of Competence Centres using the best practice examples from the expertise and experience of the participants.
CyberSec4Europe addresses key EU directives and regulations, such as the GDPR, PSD2, eIDAS, and ePrivacy, and helps to implement the EU Cybersecurity Act including, but not limited to supporting the development of the European skills base, the certification framework and the role of ENISA.
CyberSec4Europe partners address 14 key cybersecurity domains, 11 technology/application elements and seven vertical sectors. With participation in over 100 cybersecurity projects amongst them, CyberSec4Europe partners have considerable experience addressing a comprehensive set of issues across the cybersecurity domain. The project demonstration use cases address cybersecurity challenges within the vertical sectors of digital infrastructure, finance, government and smart cities, health and medicine and maritime transport. In addition to the demonstration of the governance structure and the operation of the network, CyberSec4Europe and in collaboration with the other pilot projects is developing a roadmap and recommendations for the implementation of the Network of Competence Centres using the practical experience gained in the project.
