Since the early 90’s, the EU has been investing in cybersecurity research and innovation. The Cyberwatching EU project aims to promote the understanding and uptake of the products, services and best practices arising from that research, and to enhance synergies and coordination of efforts amongst key decision makers.

In the current era, emerging technologies and the explosion of enterprise data is becoming an inherent strength enabling more experimentation and faster result which can boost performance and productivity for organisations across Europe. At the same time, Europeans have set high standards for digital privacy and security as the new EU Cybersecurity Act came into force last June 2019.

Europeans have set high standards for cybersecurity and digital privacy. The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), introduced in May 2018, provides new rules to give citizens more control over their personal data, and a competitive edge to compliant business. The National and Information Security (NIS) Directive on the other hand, is the cornerstone of the EU’s cybersecurity architecture. It provides legal measures to boost the overall level of cybersecurity in the EU.

Cyber Security is a Shared Responsibility!

European Cyber Security Month (ECSM) is the EU's annual awareness campaign that takes place each October across Europe. The aim is o raise awareness of cyber security threats, promote cyber security among citizens and organization; and provide resources to protect themselves online, through education and sharing of good practices.

The European Commission has launched a call for applications to select members of the Stakeholder Cybersecurity Certification Group (SCCG). Submission of application is until 17th September 2019.

 

The 2nd Concertation Meeting of H2020 projects from unit H1 "Cybersecurity & Privacy” gathered over 60 representatives from all projects in the unit in order to discuss a series of topics, including focus on the key topics and collaboration between the newly funded competence centre pilot projects and discussion on future directions for the Horizon Europe and Digital Europe Programmes.

Cybersecurity and Privacy issues are becoming an important barrier for a trusted and dependable global digital society development. Cyber-criminals are continuously shifting their cyber-attacks specially against cyber-physical systems and IoT, since they present additional vulnerabilities due to their constrained capabilities, their unattended nature and the usage of potential untrustworthiness components.

This session presented the latest trends in digital data privacy, the upcoming privacy challenges which our Big Data era may pose and the EU's latest privacy related policy initiatives.
