Sadly the CyberSec4Europe project funding will come to an end in December 2022 after almost four years, during which time its 43 consortium partners, friends and associates have collaborated creatively and effectively across many different domains associated with cybersecurity.

In order to celebrate what we’ve done and what is still yet to come, CyberSec4Europe will be hosting a two day event, Momentum!, on 1 and 2 December at the Representation of the State of Hessen in central Brussels.

The overall theme of the event will be not only to look at our achievements with work leaders reflecting on governance to standardisation, from blueprint research to skills training but also to highlight our visions for the future.

One of the highlights of the event will be a showcase of six shortlisted ‘key exploitable and innovative assets’ for project partners to present or demonstrate which a three-person jury will then assess for winners. Attendees will also hear our keynote speakers share their visions and expectations for the coming years from the perspectives of technology, industry, journalism and politics. All in all, this will be a memorable and unmissable opportunity to learn what we have learnt and what we see as the way forward for the European cybersecurity community.

Watch this space and REGISTER NOW!
