The focus of this booklet is to address the issue, with a white paper, of identifying the gaps in cybersecurity standards (and hence also certification). This is done using the methodology of focused desk research first and foremost in order to gather together and to summarize all of the key efforts that have gone before. We thereafter survey the cybersecurity research, industry, public sector and user communities in order to get inputs into identifying the perceived gaps.
The main objective is that we do not want to “reinvent the wheel”, but rather we want to build upon all of the efforts that have gone before and the knowledge that has been developed around cybersecurity standards and certification.
It is interesting to note that some of the most important conclusions in this deliverable have already been identified previously, which only serves to reinforce the issues that are well known.
