Prof. Dr. Udo Helmbrecht – Cybersecurity Strategies in the EU

Since the adoption of the EU Cybersecurity Strategy in 2013, the European Commission has stepped up its efforts to better protect Europeans online. It has adopted a set of legislative proposals, in particular on Network and Information Security (NIS). The keynote will provide an outline on emerging EU policy legislative context addressing improved capabilities, cooperation, crisis management and preparedness at EU Level. The second part of the keynote will focus on initiatives and synergies to support EU policy implementation that will on the one hand stimulate the competitiveness and innovation of Europe’s cybersecurity industry and on the other increase the levels of trust and security in EU products and services.
