cyberwatching.eu has collaborated with the SME community and various SME Associations around Europe. The Marketplace and its transition to become ECSO's SME Hub is evidence of how the project has a provided a tangible output that will be sustained by ECSO as an essential part of their outreach activities to European SMEs. Similarly, the SME end-user club provides evidence of uptake of EU innovation. Following continuous SME needs assessment and user experience feedback, these two outputs have closely merged into a unified cyberwatching.eu service offer to SMEs, offering multiple SME tools and services ‘under one roof’.
“SMEs have a vital role to play in the development of Europe’s cybersecurity capacities and digital sovereignty. SMEs make up the backbone of the European economy, accounting for 99% of businesses in Europe. A clear need for reliable and trusted self-assessment resources for SMEs to understand the GDPR and their cybersecurity posture was identified early in the project and then addressed successfully” Sebastiano Toffaletti, Secretary-General, European DIGITAL SME Alliance and cyberwatching.eu partner
