D5.3 Early validation & end-users club final report

SME end-user club and the Marketplace have been initially defined as key assets of cyberwatching.eu. Both of them aimed to provide services to the end-users of the project, namely European small and medium enterprises (SMEs). However, during the evolution of the project, following the continuous SME needs assessment and user experience feedback, the two concepts have closely merged into a unified cyberwatching.eu service offer to SMEs, offering multiple SME tools and services ‘under one roof’. For this reason, the purpose of this document is to report on the main SME-targeted developments, tools and services provided for the end-user SMEs, explain their needs and feedback, and provide recommendations for the future.

This early validation & end-users’ club final report, therefore, refers to the key outputs of the cyberwatching.eu which target SMEs. The document aims to report on the main developments and achievements facilitating services for the end-users, analyse the SME  needs  and  feedback  received  from  them,  and  to  provide  some  insights  on potential future actions, supporting SMEs.

D5.2 Early validation & end-users’ club feedback report

SME end-user club and the Marketplace are among the key assets of cyberwatching.eu. Both of them aim at providing services to the end-users of the project, namely European small and medium enterprises (SMEs). Therefore, it is important to ensure that these services match the needs and requirements of the end-user, and have a high potential of the uptake. For this reason, the purpose of the given document is to report on the main developments regarding services provided for the end-users, analyse their needs and feedback and provide recommendations, as well as planning of the further actions. Recommendations given at the end of the document will be taken into consideration by the consortium partners while further developing their services for SMEs, and updating the Marketplace and the SME end-user club.

This early validation & end-users‟ club feedback report, therefore, refers to two key outputs of the cyberwatching.eu: the cyberwatching.eu Marketplace and SME end- user club. The document aims to report on the main developments and achievements facilitating services for the end-users, analyse the feedback received from the SMEs, and to provide some insights on further activities, including channels of promotion, upcoming events, recommendations of improvement, etc.

D4.9 Communications & Stakeholder Engagement Report

The document is a direct output of WP4 which had a key role to play in the project in terms of raising awareness of project results, disseminating major outputs and engaging key stakeholders. The aim of this document is twofold:

  • On one hand, it reports an overview of the implementation plan that the project has put in place to create an engaged EU stakeholder community on cybersecurity & privacy sectors.
  • On the other hand, it provides evidence of the impact generated by the different activities carried out, while also linking them to the main outputs produced by Cyberwatching.eu.

Therefore, the document provides information on how the project has targeted the main target stakeholders through the various channels such as the cyberwatching.eu website, social media, events, and webinars etc. The document also reports on quantitative and qualitative measures demonstrating the impact of the project.

D4.8 EU CS&P cluster engagement final report

Clusters are groups of specialized companies, many SMEs, and other related actors, such as Universities and public administrations that cooperate closely together in a particular sector and geographical location. In D4.2 the first of three EU Cybersecurity and privacy cluster engagement reports1 published in July 2018 (M27), cyberwatching.eu reported on how it has identified and interacted with clusters actively working in Cybersecurity and Privacy (CS&P) across Europe and a catalogue of these clusters published on the cyberwatching.eu website2. In D4.53 the second of the reports published in June 2019 (M26), cyberwatching.eu reported on how to consolidate the relationship with a targeted group of clusters to ignite real interaction.

Three clusters in particular, were already engaged and very committed to interacting with cyberwatching.eu. In D4.64, the third report published in April 2020 (M36), cyberwatching.eu reported an increased number of engaged clusters covering a wider European geographic area and consolidating the relationships established through the joint development of webinars and the promotion of the tools developed within cyberwatching. In the following months (M37-M50), efforts have focused on understanding the implications of clusters in the new key figure in the digital transformation of companies and public entities: the European Digital Innovation Hubs (EDIHs). cyberwatching.eu has extended its positive impact on the clusters and their members by promoting project assets such as the GDPR temperature tool; providing networking opportunities with the R&I community; and raising awareness of emerging technologies and opportunities for businesses, and SME success stories.

A key channel for this support is the provision of joint webinars which is being carried out. cyberwatching.eu has also focused on guaranteeing the sustainability of the project assets. The services offered by cyberwatching.eu have companies as end users, especially SMEs, and clusters and EDIHs are the instrument to reach them. With the leading role of AEI Ciberseguridad offering the assets as part of the services of the new Cybersecurity Innovation Hub, based in Castilla y Leon region, with national focus and European added value, the sustainability of the tools is guaranteed, especially with joint effort from AEI Ciberseguridad and DIGITAL SME in consolidating the relationships with clusters and EDIHs.

D4.7 EU Cybersecurity & Privacy Final Roadmap

This final version of the Cybersecurity and Privavy Roadmap (July 2021) summarises and shares the key points of the significant deliverables with the cyberwatching.eu project, especially those that are relevant for the roadmap. As such, this deliverable is thus the culmination of the project work for cyberwatching.eu and can be used as a building block for further efforts after the project is complete.

Rather than recreating a new roadmap from scratch, this deliverable first and foremost represents a view of the existing roadmaps including conclusions and recommendations, so that we build upon the significant number of already existing roadmap efforts and modules, domains, categories, taxonomies and concepts such as JRC, the pilot projects (CONCORDIA, CyberSec4Europe, ECHO and SPARTA), ECSO, JRC, research and other entities. This is an important effort to understand the commonalities and the differences in approach. Furthermore, even non-European Union models and roadmaps have been considered.

Second, this deliverable also presents, summarises and shares the key points of the significant deliverables with the cyberwatching.eu project, especially those that are relevant for the roadmap. As such, this deliverable is thus the culmination of the project work for cyberwatching.eu and can be used as a building block for further efforts after the project is complete.

D4.6 EU Cybersecurity and Privacy cluster engagement report. 3rd Report

This document provides an overview of the Cybersecurity and Privacy clusters in Europe and an engagement plan to involve them in the activities organised by the Cyberwatching.eu project. The document details the process and methodology to keep a constant channel of collaboration. The report also describes the actions implemented so far and others that have been foreseen to reinforce the collaboration with clusters as intermediate actors that can provide access to numerous SMEs.

Clusters are groups of specialized companies, many SMEs, and other related actors, such as Universities and public administrations that cooperate closely together in a particular sector and geographical location. In D4.2 the first of three EU Cybersecurity and privacy cluster engagement reports1 published in July 2018 (M27), Cyberwatching.eu reported on how it has identified and interacted with clusters actively working in Cybersecurity and Privacy (CS&P) across Europe and a catalogue of these clusters published on the Cyberwatching.eu website2. In D4.53 the second of the reports published in June 2019 (M26), Cyberwatching.eu reported on how to consolidate the relationship with a targeted group of clusters to ignite real interaction.

Three clusters in particular, were already engaged and very committed to interacting with Cyberwatching.eu. In the following months (M26-41), efforts have focused on consolidating the relationship with the relevant clusters and going on with the activities defined in D4.5 second report. Now a consolidated group of eight clusters engage with Cyberwatching.eu and a memorandum of understanding has been drafted and shared with them. Cyberwatching.eu aims to impact positively on the clusters and their members by promoting project assets such as the GDPR temperature tool, providing networking opportunities with the R&I community, and raising awareness of emerging technologies and opportunities for businesses, and best practices during the COVID- 19 pandemic.

A key channel for this support is the provision of joint webinars which is being carried out. Future activities will focus on guaranteeing the sustainability of project assets to be defined in D5.3 (Sustainability plan). The services offered by Cyberwatching.eu have companies as end users, especially SMEs, and clusters are the instrument to reach them. With the involvement of a few relevant clusters it is possible to give visibility by the “call effect”. Clusters form a key target stakeholder group for this sustainability activity and by cementing further our alliance with them, we hope to achieve greater impact and sustainability

D4.5 EU Cybersecurity and Privacy cluster engagement report 2nd Report

Clusters are groups of specialized companies, many SMEs, and other related actors, such as Universities and public administrations, that cooperate closely together in a particular sector and geographical location. In D4.2 cyberwatching.eu reported on how it has identified and interacted with clusters actively working in Cybersecurity and Privacy (CS&P) across Europe and a catalogue of these clusters published on the cyberwatching.eu website.

The next step, which is reported in this deliverable, is to consolidate the relationship and aggregate a few more clusters to extend the area of influence of cyberwatching.eu. However, involving relevant and collaborative clusters is not an easy task, and it requires perseverance and adapt the strategy to the potential success of the actions carried out, and the new variables discovered in the process. Another big issue is to monitor closely ongoing and new initiatives that may modify the way Cyberwatching.eu interact with clusters, like clusters changing or growing (i.e. Info Security Ireland becoming cyberireland) or the future actions of the European Cybersecurity Competence Center and Network. The project would like to avoid duplicating efforts on tasks that are already being developed by others. With 56 relevant CS&P clusters identified across Europe, cyberwatching.eu identified a targeted group of clusters to ignite real interaction.

Three clusters in particular, are already engaged and very committed to interacting with cyberwatching.eu and we will continue to strengthen ties with them. Webinars are one of the most successful activities carried out, and the power that they have to reach potential attendants among their members has to be taken advantage of, by reinforcing this activity. For the coming months, efforts must focus in going on with the activities defined in D4.2 first report, and starting new joint actions with clusters.

These new actions will be oriented to face the main challenges for CS&P clusters and their members, beginning with the three major challenges identified in the previous report (Excellence, Internationalization and Emerging Industries) and continuing with the new challenges that will be identified during the project through the contact with the clusters. Collaborative work should lead to the confluence of research and industry objectives, to make this tandem a differential value that allows European companies to compete in any market

D4.4 : EU CYBERSECURITY & PRIVACY INTERIM ROADMAP

The Cyberwatching.eu project encompasses a significant opportunity to look at a snapshot of the broadest set of cybersecurity projects Europe-wide and even globally to a certain extent. The project is built upon the most solid of foundations, using existing work as the base, focusing upon clustering and concertation, developing practical and useful tools for the community.

This first version of the Cybersecurity and Privacy roadmap (May 2019) examines existing and previous roadmap exercises identifying key elements requiring more study and efforts that will be delivered in July 2021. The document also provides an executive summary of the project with all of the interconnections and orientations and results explained in a clear format.

Have you ever received an SMS to your smartphone that asked you to follow a link for more information? It could be a delivery notice from an online store or postal service, or a notification of a new voicemail. Maybe the SMS seemed a bit off, and you might have wondered whether you should click the link or not. But you wanted to know where your parcel is or who left a message, so you went on and clicked it anyway.
