Businesses concerned with cyber security services and products, now have the opportunity to voice their concerns and influence the European Commission on cyber security.
As part of its Digital Market Strategy, the European Commission has opened a consultation on how best to develop a public-private partnership on cyber security, which is expected to be set up in the first half of this year.
The public-private partnership will have access to EU funding and is to be developed via a contract between the European Commission and business groups.
The consultation is open until 11 March 2016 and is looking for feedback on a number of different cyber security services and issues:
- where to focus efforts for setting up a public-private partnership;
- risks and threats that people and businesses in the EU are facing;
- cyber security market conditions; and
- public-private partnership technical priorities for research and innovation.
If you wish to participate in the consultation please follow the link below:
Once the consultation closes, we shall provide an update and analysis of the results.
The Commission has also published a roadmap document outlining different policy options that should help with the growth of the European cyber security industry.
In setting up a public-private partnership, the European Commission aims to provide a more structured and coordinated approach to cyber security.
