Cybersecurity & Privacy Standards

Currently, European and International Standards and the related Certification systems are not sufficient and are not coherent across Europe or internationally, when covering the challenges of certification of cybersecurity, data protection and data privacy. As such, different countries and economic sectors have many different requirements. Certain sectors, such as Financial Services and Critical Infrastructure (e.g. electricity, water, nuclear power) can have very stringent certification requirements, but these are still not harmonised across Europe and often are specific a single country. If the proliferation of innovative communication technologies and widespread use of smart objects can provide growth opportunities are to be integrated into the Digital Single Market, European citizens and businesses expect high quality security standards to be built into new technology or services. cyberwatching.eu will engage with projects, European Standards Organisations and Standards Development Organisations in order to map assess the extent to which standards ensure greater flexibility, offer service providers a unique selling point and impact on wider implementation within both EU research and a more general context.

cyberwatching.eu will report on status of Security and Interoperability Standards, including:

  • List of standards in use in surveyed FP7 and H2020 projects;
  • Most common standard implementation use cases;
  • Gaps in the standards landscape;
  • List of recommended priorities for new standardization efforts.

Through policy tracking and evolution, cyberwatching.eu will also provide support to SDOs, European regulators, and public-private initiatives in the development of standards-based cybersecurity risk management guidelines for organisations. cyberwatching.eu will also engage with the European Catalogue of Standards which is providing a one-stop-shop at the EU level to support and guide public procurers when referring to ICT standards and profiles of standards in their call for tenders. cyberwatching.eu will identify use cases and relevant standards that can enrich the catalogue.
