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.
In the last few years, cyber security has become more of a priority for all types of organisations than ever before.
