Tuesday, 7 November – 8.30-10.30

Hotel Renaissance, Brussels

Introductory statement by MEP Pilar del Castillo,

Roundtable with Mr. Hannes Krause, coordinating cyber policy questions within the Estonian Presidency of the Council of the EU, Jakub Boratynski, Head of the Unit “Cybersecurity & Digital Privacy, DG Connect, Jean-Pierre Quémard, Chair of CEN-CENELEC Focus Group on Cybersecurity and Rasmus Theede, Policy Director at Digital Europe.

Operating in an increasingly interconnected environment composed of networks and networks of networks poses a real resilience challenge. In particular, it raises the issue of resuming business as usual – for both public and private sector in the EU – after the failure of one – or several – links of the chain. Which preventive measures should be taken to avoid such failure? Should an accident and / or an attack occur, which mechanisms would allow for managing the consequences? What should be the role of the EU in this context? The debate aims at stocktaking the key EU initiatives in the field of Cybersecurity and to assess to which extent they can contribute to increase EU resilience to cyberattacks and / or failures.

This event is organised by CEIS in the context of the preparation of the upcoming 10th edition of the International Cybersecurity Forum.

Registration is free of charge but places are limited : register before 1st November !
