Cybersecurity and privacy should become complementary enablers of the EU digital economy, ensuring a trusted networked ICT environment for governments, businesses and citizens. The compliance of the European infrastructures, products and services with relevant directives/regulations (e.g. NIS, EU Cybersecurity Act, GDPR) and standards will promote trust and confidence to the European consumers and providers/suppliers, paving the way for a competitive, trustworthy Digital Single Market. Innovative solutions and services in digital security, privacy and personal data protection will open new market opportunities for the EU companies and will ensure a secure and trusted networked environment for the whole society. Cybersecurity and privacy technologies will significantly contribute to strengthen the competitiveness of the EU industry and will enable its development as world leader in the global market. The solutions proposed should enable an active participation of citizens and organisations to their own security, privacy and personal data protection.

During this session, the Commission will present the following H2020 topics relevant to cybersecurity:

  • SU-ICT-02-2020: Building blocks for resilience in evolving ICT systems.
  • SU-DS02-2020: Intelligent security and privacy management.
  • SU-DS03-2019-2020: Digital Security and privacy for citizens and Small and Medium Enterprises and Micro Enterprises. 
  • SU-DS04-2018-2020: Cybersecurity in the Electrical Power and Energy System (EPES): an armour against cyber and privacy attacks and data breaches.
  • SU-INFRA01-2018-2019-2020: Prevention, detection, response and mitigation of combined physical and cyber threats to critical infrastructure in Europe.

These topics are placed under the Cybersecurity Call in the LEIT/ICT part of WP2018-20 as well as in the Digital Security and INFRA Calls of Societal Challenge 7 "Secure societies - Protecting freedom and security of Europe and its citizens".

During the last part of the session, proposers would be welcome to present outlining relevant ideas related to potential proposals. Presentations should be brief, of around 3 minutes duration, to allow having timeslots for different presenters.

Dear colleagues from the European Commission,

We wondered if there is interest in a brief presentation or key note on the role of automation and prevention in cybersecurity during the digital-excellence-forum-ict-proposers-day-2019.

We would be delighted to get involved.

Kind regards,
