EU Cybersecurity and Resilience – What challenges to create a common framework?

ECSO is excited to participate in the hybrid debate covering "EU Cybersecurity and Resilience – What challenges to create a common framework?" organised by Euractiv on the 20th September 2022 in Brussels, Belgium and joined by ECSO's Chief Operating Officer Dr. Joanna Świątkowska.


Although Internet of Things (IoT) products create a wide range of opportunities by connecting people, information, and places, they also increase the risk of cybersecurity incidents affecting entire systems. Indeed, the infinite number of heterogeneous digital connected products, each with their own vulnerabilities, expand the potential attack surface and leave users open to theft of sensitive data and malfunctioning networks, if not worse, as large scale cyberattacks on European critical infrastructure has shown in the past months.


Under a common legal framework requiring digital products to be designed and operated more securely, with duty of care at the heart of their development, the aim is to enhance the security of the entire cyber ecosystem, from consumer to critical industrial infrastructures, while strengthening the functioning of the internal market. However, « a common approach » remains difficult to define as stakeholders are opposed to the definition of a one-size-fits-all solution that will not achieve the objectives of the text.


Join this EURACTIV Hybrid Conference to explore the different options to reinforce the cybersecurity of connected devices and discuss how we can ensure that all digital products are safe and secure in a way that protects end-users, industry, and public entities.
