The Cyber Security Summer Hub

Introduction

The Cyber Security Hub was a participatory online debate on European and global cyber security policy. The Hub seeked to kick-start the conversation around Europe’s Security Union and its cyber security policy, and more broadly around the role cyber will play in Europe’s drive for greater digital sovereignty.

Discovery Sessions

Discovery and networking sessions are designed to provide a basis for debate and discussion on focussed topics, and at the same time allowing for networking around dedicated issues. The sessions are led by two subject matter experts with up to 8 audience members able to join the discussion at any one time to have their say.

Session A: Showcasing European SMEs’ digital solutions and Managing Public & Private Fundraising for SMEs

SMEs are the heart of innovation and wealth in Europe but they could particularly suffer during and after a crisis like the one we are experiencing today. It is therefore essential to be able to shed light on their competences and offers beyond their local market and support SMEs across Europe in the transition to digital which carries an increased cybersecurity component. Europe should also endeavour to keep their competence and innovation capacity in Europe: for this we need to concentrate our financial efforts from across EU to help them in their development.

Session B: Cyber Ranges: Cyber ranges towards a federated approach

In light of the different ongoing initiatives (EDA, ECHO, etc) and of the currently increasing digital transformation, this session discusses the motivations to federate / connect cyber ranges at European level and understand what added value would this bring to the cybersecurity community. Can we envisage a cyber ranges marketplace to ensure availability of resources to conduct trainings for staff, R&D, etc and allow all cyber ranges to come together and connect with one another?

Europe’s Cyber Security Policy Landscape: Is enough being done to drive the European market for cyber security?

Over the past decade, cyber security has emerged as a key priority. In order to guarantee the safety, security and resilience of our economy and society, a range of regulatory initiatives (such as the NIS Directive and the Cyber Security Act) have been launched and implemented to improve Europe’s cyber security capabilities and drive the development of common security solutions. This session will take stock of what has been achieved, analyse the current state-of-play of the various cyber security policy initiatives and explore what remains to be done to equip Europe with the right tools to boost the European market for cyber security products and services.

 

What more can be done at policy level in order to tackle the fragmentation of the European cybersecurity market and promote greater innovation and competitiveness? How can investments in cyber security products and services be further encouraged to support the existing and future needs of the industry? What can be done to enhance trust and information sharing across regions, countries and sectors?

5G toolbox implementation: state of play and way forward for trust building

Last January, the European Commission released its Communication on Secure 5G Deployment in the EU, the so-called ‘5G Security toolbox’, providing guidance to Member States on the roll-out and future use of 5G networks. The aim of this initiative is to ensure a coordinated European approach based on robust security measures. With the toolbox recommendations being non-binding, questions are raised on how individual countries will address 5G security, this session will explore the state-of-play regarding the implementation of the 5G toolbox in Member States, the challenges that have been identified and discuss the extent to which a true consensus on technological and strategic measures can be found.

Global Supply Chains and Cyber Security in the Post-COVID-19 Crisis Recovery Phase

In today’s digitally reliant world, cyber security is unarguably a shared global issue, and responsibility. International cooperation in this area has never been more crucial, with the EU working with a number of global partners to strengthen the resilience of cyberspace. This session will discuss the role and future for global cyber security supply chains, and the importance of transparency, trust, and common security standards as the basis of a secure digital space. As Europe enters the 5G era and with the entire digital ecosystem of interconnected products being only as secure as its weakest link, what is being done to address issues related to the vulnerability of this complex supply chain?

EU Digital Sovereignty Panel Discussion: What role will cyber security play in deepening Europe’s digital independence?

Enhancing Europe’s technological sovereignty and autonomy is a top priority for the European Commission. The aim is to enable Europe to fully grasp the potential of the digital age by strengthening its innovation capacity while ensuring that our values are reflected in the development of new digital products and services. Principles such as security, openness, transparency, trust and fairness can add major added-value to a strong European cybersecurity solutions offering, bolstering the EU’s ability to truly compete on the global stage and ultimately reducing the dependence on foreign companies.

 

This session will explore how Europe’s cyber security capabilities can provide a solid base for its digital independence. How can Europe harness its cybersecurity assets and talent to increase its market position and strengthen its digital autonomy? How can Public-Private-Partnerships be reinforced to consolidate the European cybersecurity ecosystem? What is needed to further promote the development of security-focused technologies and encourage their adoption by both the public and private sectors? To what extent will the creation of the European Cybersecurity Industrial, Technology and Research Centre and of the Network of National Coordination Centres concretely help increase the EU’s autonomy and competitiveness? What is being concretely done to implement a European certification framework for cybersecurity technologies and services which could act as a mark of quality, trust and security allowing European cybersecurity champions to emerge and to become influential on the global market? How can it be ensured that cybersecurity standardization activities at EU level are compatible with initiatives undertaken in other regions of the world?

The Future of the Cyber Security Industry: Digital Innovation and Human Oversight

While emerging technologies will increasingly play a role in both cyber-attack and cyber-defence – particularly through the use of AI; human supervision will remain fundamental. Engineers, developers, data scientists, and increasingly people with the ability to communicate and frame cyber security as a real business challenge, will all continue to play important but varying and changing roles. This session will bring together cyber security experts for a discussion on how humans and technology will interact in the field of cyber security, the nature of digital innovation in the field, and the skills that will be necessary to optimise this relationship to secure our cyber eco-systems.

Cyber Certification and Standards

Cyber security certification is seen as an important tool in raising security standards and increasing public confidence in the digital, and data, economy. The EU’s Cyber Security Act which came into force in June 2019, creates a security certification framework under which EU-wide certification schemes can be developed and implemented in a harmonised way, seeking to prevent market fragmentation. This session will provide a state-of-play with regards to cyber certification and its interaction with other recent initiatives such as the 5G toolbox.
