Summary

In a hyper-connected world where the functioning of our economies and democratic processes rely on a secure and resilient cyberspace, our societies are increasingly becoming vulnerable to cyber incidents, with attacks growing in both their sophistication and frequency, causing significant damage. To respond to the ever-growing diversity and virulence of cyber threats, Europe has undertaken, in past years, several key actions in order to create a trustworthy cyber ecosystem.

Following the review of the European Cyber Security Strategy, to take place in September, this year’s conference will be an opportunity to take stock of what has been achieved, and more crucially to explore the next steps in fostering, a secure digital environment where all economic actors and citizens can safely take advantage of the benefits offered by digital in Europe.

 
These discussions will be held in the context of continued technological innovation, of the digital transformation of our industries and of global political developments regarding the responsible use of the digital space.
