The overriding objective of cyberwatching.eu is to lower barriers to innovative cyber security and privacy (CS&P) products and services such as those coming from projects funded by the EC, EU member states and associated countries.
The assets of cyberwatching.eu are designed to address these barriers:
- Fragmented across the EU, which entail individual websites describing individual project activities: An EU Cyberwatching.eu Observatory offering a comprehensive and organic view of R&I initiatives, services and products emerging across the EU and Associated Countries intends to build these blocks;
- Difficulties in building a market reputation: A marketplace and catalogue of services meeting new end-user needs stemming from a complex and multi-faceted landscape of cyber risks while increasing understanding of EU compliance obligations.
- Small Businesses do not have the time or financial resources to understand and spend on cybersecurity tools and services: Cyberwatching.eu SME end-user club: bringing small businesses together in one place facilitates the adoption of a cyber-security strategy in companies with few resources, learning from best practices adopted by others.
The following Concertation Activities Plan outlines the novel approach that cyberwatching.eu has introduced to create a “unified approach” of clustered projects working together with the aim of maximizing their project results impact.
