TOPICS

Cyber-threats continue to increase in numbers and complexity, threatening business, citizens, governments and critical infrastructure globally.

EU policies and legislation, such as the GDPR and Cybersecurity Act, are being advanced to address threats to governments, businesses and vulnerabilities affecting consumer data and individual privacy. Europe’s first step in harmonisation of the cybersecurity legislation across the European Union is the Cyber Act (Cybersecurity Package).

But how does this compare internationally?
In the US, the focal point is the NIST Framework, while in Japan it is the NISC. With such a nascent landscape, harmonisation and a common framework are required not only at national levels but also at European and international levels.

Our session will be the place for international dialogue on this very topic. Shooting from the hip, we’ll have experts from Europe, the US and Japan addressing the key issues towards international harmonisation.

✅ How can we better understand and implement public policies to fight cybersecurity threats while preserving innovation, security research, civil liberties and individual privacy?

✅ Will the GDPR be taken as an opportunity for businesses to provide trusted and secure services to customers?

✅ Will it drive the global digital market or become a barrier? How much of a significant issue will this be for SMEs?

✅ What mechanisms can we use to reduce risk and attain our global quest for cyber trust?

Join us for this overview and engaging discussion of important technical, legal and policy issues.
