DIGITAL SME Working Group Cybersecurity and Data Protection, together with Cyberwatching.eu, is organising a workshop on the Cybersecurity Competence Centre Pilot Projects on 14 July, 9.00 – 11.00 CEST, to discuss opportunities for SMEs or Digital Innovation Hubs to be engaged in the pilots.
With the establishment of the European Cybersecurity Competence Centre in Bucharest, the European Commission and Member States are taking steps to ensure that Europe’s cybersecurity capacities are strengthened, to ensure that European digital autonomy is secured. SMEs are at the heart of this effort, and the Competence Centre represents an opportunity for SMEs to be directly involved in deciding how our cybersecurity capabilities are developed.
Before the Centre becomes operational, four pilot projects have been established to develop aspects of the Centre and Network:
During the event, each of the pilot projects will be presented, discussing the impact this might have on the Competence Centre once it is implemented, and any opportunities for SMEs or DIHs to be engaged through participation in the pilots, membership of the Community and engagement with the Network.
The SOCCRATES project is conducting an elaborate series of webinars to share its vision and insights with interested audiences. The first 5 webinars were centered around the SOCCRATES platform components and took place between October 2020 and June 2021. The second series will run until June of 2022 and address results achieved at the (Mnemonic, Vattenfall and Shadowserver) pilot sites.
The European Commission puts a great emphasis on the twin transition to a green and digital economy as the way forward for Europe.
In many sectors, SMEs can use enabling technologies to redesign their operations and become green(er). Standards are fundamental for sustainable technology as they provide reliable, consistent building blocks that can be universally understood and adopted. These building blocks aid in promoting compatibility and interoperability and speed up time-to-market.
