The Commission today launches a new public-private partnership on cybersecurity that is expected to trigger €1.8 billion of investment by 2020. This is part of a series of new initiatives to better equip Europe against cyber-attacks and to strengthen the competitiveness of its cybersecurity sector. According to a recent survey, at least 80% of European companies have experienced at least one cybersecurity incident over the last year and the number of security incidents across all industries worldwide rose by 38% in 2015. This damages European companies, whether they are big or small, and threats to undermine trust in the digital economy. As part of its Digital Single Market strategy the Commission wants to reinforce cooperation across borders, and between all actors and sectors active in cybersecurity, and to help develop innovative and secure technologies, products and services throughout the EU. Andrus Ansip, Vice-President for the Digital Single Market, said: "Without trust and security, there can be no Digital Single Market. Europe has to be ready to tackle cyber-threats that are increasingly sophisticated and do not recognise borders. Today, we are proposing concrete measures to strengthen Europe's resilience against such attacks and secure the capacity needed for building and expanding our digital economy." Günther H. Oettinger, Commissioner for the Digital Economy and Society, said: "Europe needs high quality, affordable and interoperable cybersecurity products and services. There is a major opportunity for our cybersecurity industry to compete in a fast-growing global market. We call on Member States and all cybersecurity bodies to strengthen cooperation and pool their knowledge, information and expertise to increase Europe's cyber resilience. The milestone partnership on cybersecurity signed today with the industry is a major step ."\ Today's action plan includes the launch of the first European public private partnership on cybersecurity. The EU will invest €450 millionin this partnership, under its research and innovation programme Horizon 2020. Cybersecurity market players, represented by the European Cyber Security Organisation (ECSO), are expected to invest three times more. This partnership will also include members from national, regional and local public administrations, research centres and academia. The aim of the partnership is to foster cooperation at early stages of the research and innovation process and to build cybersecurity solutions for various sectors, such as energy, health, transport and finance. Commissioner Oettinger today signs the partnership with the ECSO in Strasbourg (photos and videos to be available at around 12.00 CET). The Commission also sets out different measures to tackle the fragmentation of the EU cybersecurity market. Currently an ICT company might need to undergo different certification processes to sell its products and services in several Member States. The Commission will therefore look into a possible European certification framework for ICT security products. A myriad of innovative European SMEs have emerged in niche markets (e.g. cryptography) and in well-established markets with new business models (e.g. antivirus software), but they are often unable to scale up their operations. The Commission wants to ease access to finance for smaller businesses working in the field of cybersecurity and will explore different options under the EU investment plan. The Network and Information Security Directive, which is expected to be adopted by the European Parliament tomorrow, already creates a network of Computer Security Incident Response Teams across the EU in order to rapidly react to cyber threats and incidents. It also establishes a ‘Cooperation Group’ between Member States, to support and facilitate strategic cooperation as well as the exchange of information, and to develop trust and confidence. The Commission today calls on Member States to make the most of these new mechanisms and to strengthen coordination when and where possible. The Commission will propose how to enhance cross-border cooperation in case of a major cyber-incident. Given the speed with which the cybersecurity landscape is evolving, the Commission will also bring forward its evaluation of the European Union Agency for Network and Information Security (ENISA).This evaluation will assess whether ENISA's mandate and capabilities remain adequate to achieve its mission of supporting EU Member States in boosting their own cyber resilience. The Commission also examines how to strengthen and streamline cybersecurity cooperation across different sectors of the economy, including in cybersecurity training and education. http://europa.eu/rapid/press-release_IP-16-2321_en.htm
  For Master students or students in the final year of a Bachelor’s degree in a Science or Social Science the National Cyber Security Summer School, NCS3 will take place between August 22 and 26th in the Hague, Rotterdam, Delft and Amsterdam.    During the NCS3, students receive lectures from leading experts from academia, private sector and public sector, company and organization visits, a Hands on Hack-lab, a Crisis Simulation, and a Dark-Web training. They will also get the opportunity to compete with their peers on presenting an advice, where the winners will be pitching to the Dutch Cyber Security Council, and will be offered a prize by the NCS3 partners. The evening program of the NCS3 includes networking drinks and dinner, a match-making event, and several other opportunities to meet with their peers.   Want to know more?For more information, please visit www.NCS3.nl  The NCS3 is an initiative of the Dutch Cyber Security Council (CSR) and is organized by dcypher with the support from CGI Group, Nederland-ICT, TNO, the National Cyber Security Centre, Leiden University, TU Delft, and several other organizations. 
14 October 2016 Zuiderstrandtheater The Hague (free parking/ free shuttle buses)During the 2016 ‘Alert Online’ period, the Dutch governmental campaign for cybersecurity awareness, a Cybersecurity Matchmaking event is held. Reasons to organize this event are the upcoming third national cybersecurity research tender (funded by the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO), the taskforce SIA, the Ministry of Security and Justice and the Internal Security Fund of the European Union, executed by NWO and SIA) and the desire to identify improvements in cybersecurity higher education, to better match the needs of the public and private sector.  Who should attend?The event is for everyone, interested or involved in cybersecurity research, development, innovation and education. We invite especially those interested in participation in possible future cybersecurity R&D or education projects (scientists, students, entrepreneurs), public and private research partners, potential profit and non-profit users of research project results, teachers of fundamental and applied cybersecurity and policy makers. ResearchJoin our event if you consider participation in the next national cybersecurity SBIR* call and/or NWO long-term research call and you look for contacts e.g. to realize a joint research project proposal, and get an understanding of terms and conditions associated with the application process of the third cybersecurity tender. EducationIf you are interested in closing the gaps between job profiles and cybersecurity curricula and have ideas to optimise cybersecurity (higher) education and you like to make (first) contacts to share ideas, suggestions, best practices, educational challenges this matchmaking event is the place! Find out more Register here Note: in a later stage you will receive an email to extend your registration with specific information in order to get your visit customised. OrganisationThe Matchmaking Cybersecurity is organised by the Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RvO), the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC), Taskforce SIA and the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO) in close cooperation with the dcypher (dutch cybersecurity platform for higher education and research)in conjunction with AlertOnline.  Background infoThe Ministry of Security and Justice, the Internal Security Fund of the European Union, the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO), and the taskforce SIA all contribute financially to the (third) funding round of (multidisciplinary) cybersecurity research, within the framework of the National Cyber Security Research Agenda (NCSRA-II). The national tender will again include a call for long-term, more fundamental research, and a call for applied R&D for medium-term R&D (SBIR). The SBIR is funded by the Ministry of Security and Justice and the Internal Security Fund of the European Union. The objective is to develop a Dutch cybersecurity higher education (HBO and WO) Agenda and to get a closer connection between cybersecurity research and education. *
