Perspectives on research and development in cyber security in Europe

Presented by

Sokratis K. Katsikas

About this talk

The rapidly increasing number of digital personal devices and the increasing connectivity, as well as emerging technologies and application areas such as the Internet of Things increases our dependence on ICT. On the other hand, new cyber threats and vulnerabilities appear, with increased impact on critical infrastructures and societal functions. This landscape bears significant risks not only to the economy and the society, but also to the national digital sovereignty and autonomy. Additionally, at the EU level there is a need to support the vision of the Digital Signal Market and to develop the European cybersecurity market and industry. In response to these needs, the European industry have submitted their view that describes objectives to be pursued, as well as cybersecurity priority technical areas for action. The European research community have also come up with a strategic research agenda describing cybersecurity research priority areas. The European Commission and the European Cyber Security Organization recently launched the cyber Public Private Partnership (cPPP) initiative to support all types of initiatives or projects that aim to develop, promote, or encourage European cybersecurity. In this talk, the above agendas will be discussed with an eye towards identifying prospective cybersecurity research and innovation areas.
