The Future EU Cybersecurity Assessments Roundtable held on 22 May at the Press Club, Brussels was co-organised by TDL and New Europe and brought together representatives from the European Institutions, academia and industry to discuss best practices in the security assessment area. The EU Cybersecurity Act, currently under discussion at the European Parliament and at the Council of the EU, has generated considerable debate. Key stakeholders shared their views on risk analysis, best practices, certification frameworks, self-assessment techniques, and other challenges the EU needs to address to create a safer computing ecosystem for its citizens.
The roundtable opened with a welcome from TDL Chairman Amardeo Sarma and followed by a keynote from Peter Kouroumbashev MEP. Moderated by Riccardo Masucci (Intel), interventions were given by Dr. Ludmila Georgieva (Permanent Representation of Austria to the EU), Aristotelis Tzafalias (European Commission), Aidan Ryan (ENISA), Professor Bart Preneel (KU Leuven), Professor Tanja Lange (TU Eindhoven), Olaf Tettero (Brightsight), Corinna Schulze (SAP) and Dr. Claire Vishik (Intel).
A short report on the debate will be published in the coming days.
