Session teaser

Cybersecurity: no-one wins by fighting yesterday’s battle. How can we look beyond current practice and consider the challenges ahead, in terms of trust, regulation and governance?

Session description

This session will build on the first workshop’s examples of good (and not so good) practice, looking ahead to the challenges that should be concerning us.

  • What are the roots of trust in online services; what destroys them, and what makes them stronger?
  • How do security and privacy relate to each other, and what kind of governance regime can optimise for both?
  • What can we learn from previous attempts at governance in this area?
  • What kind of governance positions us best to respond to the unexpected? Is one approach more "agile" than another?


cybersecurity, security, trust, threats, governance, agility, privacy


Just like the preceding WS5 session, we want to give your input pride of place, so please come ready to play an active role:

  • What impact does cybersecurity and its governance have on you, and your trust in the Internet?
  • Do you think there is a "balance" to be struck between security and privacy, or is it not a zero-sum game?

The structure of the session will be as follows:

  • Moderator's opening remarks, to set context
  • Questions and best practice examples from the audience
  • Comment and responses from the panellists
  • Interactive Q&A (everyone)
  • Moderator's wrap-up, and a second visit to the "Wishing Tree"

Transcript: The future of cybersecurity in Europe - from state of play to state of art


  • People tend to cluster together and collaborate within trusted communities, because with a trusted relationship something can be done. How to broaden this cooperation by binding with other clusters/communities?
  • We need to collaborate to get things done, and the essential point is then to create trust between stakeholder groups: successful examples were when battling spam and cooperation between CERTS and LEA’s. It can be done.
  • Diplomatic communities (with a so called ’military tradition’) and technical communities often mean something completely different when talking about security. There is a massive gap. But they are talking to each other and there certainly is an intention to continue the dialogue.
  • How to keep the different ‘clusters’ open, where issues are discussed? More transparency is necessary when it comes public-private-partnerships: all stakeholders should (be able to) participate.
  • There is a multitude of platforms and initiatives working on cybersecurity, all spending money and doing capacity building: but are they indeed open and transparent, and what effect do they have and how to bring them together? This is an open question…
