One of the objectives in the aftermath of the four cybersecurity pilot projects is to strengthen the cybersecurity community in Europe and working to that end are representatives from TDL, the EU-CHECK (led by CNRS) and CyberSecPro projects.

The event will focus on some of the main drivers of these initiatives, from skills and education to market trends in innovation, as well as emerging initiatives from the EU itself such as the AI Act, the Cybersecurity Resilience Act and the European Digital Identity Framework (eIDAS 2.0).

The overall focus is forward-looking, on what is to come over the next two years, to support driving the European digital identity and cybersecurity community and to provide guidance to the NCCs on what to expect.
