Cyberwatching Networking Session at ICT2018

Harmonising EU and international Cybersecurity and Privacy

11:30 – 12:15, 6 December 2019
Room L1, ICT2018
Vienna, Austria

Cyber-threats continue to increase in numbers and complexity, threatening business, citizens, governments and critical infrastructure globally. The problem goes beyond borders and our cyberwatching.eu workshop at ICT2018 will ask the question how can we achieve greater alignment internationally on cybersecurity and privacy issues?

EU policies and legislation such as the GDPR, and Cybersecurity act are being advanced to address threats to governments, businesses and vulnerabilities affecting consumer data and individual privacy. In the US, the focal point is the NIST Framework, while in Japan it is NISC. With such a nascent landscape, harmonisation and a common framework is required not only at national levels but also at European and international levels.

With speakers from NAIST four projects focussing on EU-US and EU-JP alignment we’ll find out how Europe’s approach compares with our other parts of the world and whether new regulations are raising the bar for cybersecurity services or hampering innovation.

Roundtable with panellists and audience participation

Questions may include:

  • How can we better understand and implement public policies to fight cybersecurity threats while preserving innovation, security research, civil liberties, and individual privacy?
  • Europe’s first step at harmonisation of the cybersecurity legislation across the European Union is the Cyber Act (Cybersecurity Package). But how does this compare internationally?
  • Are recent EU directives and law (NIS directive & GDPR) barriers for international collaboration or can they be a spring-board for raising the bar for CS&P internationally?
  • Will it drive the global digital market or become a barrier? / How much of a significant issue will this be for SMEs?
  • How can cyber risk be addressed?
  • What kind of Risk Management strategy should be in place?
  • Where do you see international alignment in 10 years time? Will we be nearer or further apart?
