The UK government has recently announced its plans for an updated national cybersecurity strategy aimed at significantly boostings its resilience to cyber-attacks and cyber warfare in what has been dubbed as a "full spectrum" approach.
The European Cyber Security Organisation (ECSO) has recently published its input to the Horizon Europe Programme. The document identifies four main pillars, or strategic areas for investment, that could be supported by the coming Horizon Europe Programme, to develop a cybersecurity research and innovation strategy in Europe to increase digital autonomy and respond to the needs of European industrial sectors while protecting the European fundamental rights.
The European Standards Organizations CEN, CENELEC and ETSI, have joined forces with ENISA, the European Union Agency for Cybersecurity, to bring you a virtual Cybersecurity Standardisation Conference on ‘European Standardization in support of the EU Cybersecurity Act’, with dedicated sessions on the Radio Equipment Directive (RED), & the Consumer Internet of Things (CIoT) and 5G among others.
If you run an SME, then you will almost certainly know about the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) and how it has been affecting the European business landscape in the last two and a half years. The purpose of the GDPR is to protect people's fundamental rights and freedoms, especially their right to personal data protection.
If your organisation processes users' personal data, the GDPR requires the company to provide consumers with certain information, which can be found in the privacy notice. But how well does your company know how to write a privacy notice?
Although the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) came into effect more than two years ago, many companies are still unclear about what they need to do to fully comply with it.
For this reason, the EC-funded H2020 project cyberwatching.eu has launched the GDPR Temperature Tool to increase the awareness of European SMEs about fines and sanctions due to GDPR regulations.
Cybersecurity has played a critical role in 2020, especially because of the shift to an increased usage of digital products due to the COVID-19 pandemic. While we have seen an increase in the importance of cybersecurity within some organisations' strategy, it is important to understand the difference between compliance to cybersecurity guidelines or requirements and security itself. Compliance and security may have a similar meaning, but definitely have different impacts on a company's cybersecurity risk management activities.
On Wednesday 16th December 2020 the European Commission has released a new EU Cybersecurity Strategy.
The new Cyberecurity Strategy will play a key role in stregthening Europe’s resilience against cyber threats and in ensuring the creation of reliable services and digital tools for citizens and businesses.
