On 12 September 2018, the European Commission proposed a regulation establishing a European Cybersecurity Industrial, Technology and Research Competence Centre and a Network of National Coordination Centres. Its aim is to improve EU cybersecurity and resilience, enhance and strengthen the EU’s cybersecurity capacity, stimulating the European cybersecurity technological and industrial ecosystem and coordinating and pooling relevant EU resources. Two years later aspects of the proposal continue to be discussed between the European Parliament, the Member States and the Commission supported by the four pilot projects, including CyberSec4Europe. This evening’s session will explore through insights and discussion how the Competence Centre and Network will unfold during the German EU Presidency and beyond.
