‘CYBERSECURITY MADE IN EUROPE’: Anew label for a stronger and more competitive European cybersecurity market

CYBERSECURITY MADE IN EUROPE is an industry-driven marketing tool, designed to promote European cybersecurity companies and increase their visibility on the European and on the global market. The lack of such marketing tool inspired us – European Cyber Security Organisation (ECSO) - to develop the Label.

What Are the Benefits?

  • The Label serves as a market differentiator based on geographic location.
  • The Label raises awareness of the strategic value of cybersecurity companies originating in Europe and developing their business based on trusted European values.
  • The Label increases companies’ visibility among potential business partners ,end-users and cybersecurity investors.

Who Can Apply?

European cybersecurity companies from the European Union Member States (EU27), the European Free Trade Association (EFTA) and European Economic Area (EEA) countries, as well as the United Kingdom (UK) are invited to apply for the Label.
