The event plans to highlight to the European cybersecurity stakeholder community the progress that is being made in harnessing European expertise and resources in the broader context of the proposed legislation relating to a European Cybersecurity Industrial, Technology and Research Competence Centre and a Network of National Coordination Centres.
The Cyber Competence Network, comprising the four pilots CyberSec4Europe, SPARTA, CONCORDIA and ECHO, are delighted to announce a two-day concertation event from 9-11 December to be hosted online with the friendly support of the Representation of the State of Hessen to the EU.
The program outline consists of an introductory evening session with welcome addresses from the four pilot coordinators followed by a high-level panel discussion. The next one and a half days will provide each pilot the opportunity to demonstrate their achievements and results to date through videos, presentations, tools, panel discussions, and will also feature a series of focus groups that showcase the cooperation between the pilots on certain related cybersecurity topics.
Each focus group will start with a short general introduction for those not acquainted with the subject area. The focus groups areas are:
- Cyber ranges
- JRC Cybersecurity Atlas
- Threat intelligence in the financial sector
