Session teaser

Is it possible to promote a global, open, stable and secure cyberspace while strengthening cooperation and motivating industry and governments to embrace cybersecurity standards?

Session description

The European Cybersecurity Strategy, released December 2020, aims to ensure a global and open internet with strong safeguards where there are risks to security and the fundamental rights of people in Europe. It looks to build resilience to cyber threats and ensure citizens and businesses benefit from trustworthy digital technologies, and contains proposals for regulatory, investment and policy initiatives, in three areas of EU action: (1)Resilience, technological sovereignty and leadership, (2) Building operational capacity to prevent, deter and respond, and (3) Advancing a global and open cyberspace through increased cooperation. This session will explore how collaborative standards development and its outputs can help support the European Cybersecurity Strategy and how standards strengthen linkages between European cyber policy and non-government sectors.


An interactive discussion will take place on how to approach, integrate, collaborate and develop standards across organizations and interests to support on-going European security/cybersecurity needs and interests.

Participants will address the following questions:

  • How do standards contribute to strengthening cooperation with partners around the world to promote a global, open, stable and secure cyberspace–and their role in the European Cybersecurity Strategy?
  • Is there a need to increase participation in collaborative standards development?
  • Is three a need to raise awareness to EU and non-EU countries with related issues at the intersection of cybersecurity and standards, and how can this be done?


Each panel member will present a brief overview of their views and perspectives on the European Cybersecurity Strategy through the lens of the current cybersecurity standardization, business and policy landscape, as well as share what they may see as possible gaps or opportunities in cooperation and collaboration in the European approach to cybersecurity standardization that should be addressed. This will be followed by an interactive open discussion with all attendees to hear opinions, ideas, concepts and recommendations that can contribute to practical steps as the strategy is implemented.
