Workshop 5: Building an open, safe & secure cyberspace

How best to prevent and respond to cyber disruptions and attacks

The workshop focused on Cybersecurity and the balance between necessary security measures and the best use of the opportunities offered by the internet.

The morning session looked at how these different concerns of the individual user can be balanced and how technology and policies can contribute to empower citizens to fully enjoy all benefits of the digital world. The afternoon session focused on cybersecurity from the high-level perspective of providing security on a European level, a responsibility shared between European regulators, the Member States and industry. In particular, the session discussed the implications of the proposed Directive on Network and Information Security (NIS) on cooperation with industry and how cybersecurity incidents can be prevented or limited in their impact.
