How to keep track with global EU standards will promote through its website, social media channels and professional networks best practices from standardization organisations (SDOs and SSOs) concerning cyber-risk management, cybersecurity and privacy. will keep all the major stakeholders (R&I groups, SMEs, public sector bodies) updated on the most relevant standardization efforts, how to implement them and which purpose they’re supposed to serve.

The coverage will be overarching: not only EU standards will be mapped but also internationally, such as new network security standards from ISO/IEC, NIST (US National Institute of Standards and Technology), ETSI, ITU, IEEE. Furthermore, will support greater uptake and increased harmonization across EU organisations, promoting concrete benefits of standards implementation.
