  • Description:

Within the European Union, norms and standards are being strengthened in response to the growing threat posed by cyber-attacks and to take advantage of the opportunities presented by the new digital age (European Council, 2019). This conference is part of the outreach work of the European Union’s ECHO project, whose vision is to provide an approach to the European Union’s cyber defence capabilities in an organised and coordinated manner. Within cyber defence, a vitally important area is the debate on the organisation of cybersecurity governance at various levels, national and supranational; for this reason, the main objective of this event is to bring together the vision of different actors in the cybersecurity ecosystem at European level in order to obtain a set of conclusions and detect areas of work with a view to improving capabilities in the field of cyber defence and cybersecurity.
