Proposal for a European Cybersecurity Competence Network and Centre

Building on the cybersecurity initiatives announced by the European Commission in 2017, such as the EU Cybersecurity Act and the European certification schemes, the European Commission proposes as a next step the creation of a Network of Cybersecurity Competence Centres and a new European Cybersecurity Industrial, Technology and Research Competence Centre to invest in stronger and pioneering cybersecurity capacity in the EU.

The aims of the proposals are to help the EU retain and develop the cybersecurity technological and industrial capacities necessary to secure its Digital Single Market. This goes hand-in-hand with the key objective to increase the competitiveness of the EU's cybersecurity industry and turn cybersecurity into a competitive advantage of other European industries.

Further details about the proposals can be found here.  techUK will be hosting a workshop with the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) in November to discuss these proposals as well as other EU cyber security regulations
