Cybersecurity certification and standards has been a central theme running through the cyberwatching.eu project and are reflected in these reports. They go hand in hand in addressing the issue of trust with respect to the view of the users and the European citizens. Traditional methods of certification address systemic approaches and must be adapted to the fast-evolving realm of cybersecurity. Inevitably, industry led initiatives have been the most prevalent, but often these are driven by the largest industry and research players, such that the standards and certification solutions developed are not always suitable for SMEs (Small and Medium Enterprise) which comprise a large proportion of the innovations going forward currently.
ECSO is proud to announce that the call is now open for startups to attend the 10th Cyber Investor Days and compete for the European Cybersecurity STARtup Award. Selected startups will win the chance to pitch their innovative cybersecurity solutions and hold B2B meetings with leading investors and corporations from Europe and beyond at ECSO’s Cyber Investor Days, taking place on 1 and 2 December 2021 in Helsinki, Finland.
