The draft “EU Cybersecurity Act”, proposed one year ago, intends to establish a European cybersecurity certification framework for ICT products, services and processes. Standardisation will play an important role in the new framework. It is therefore crucial for all stakeholders (standardizers, policy makers, industry) to check where we stand today.

The conference will discuss the remaining challenges in the standardisation landscape for Cybersecurity in light of the new Act. The consequences for policy makers, industry, citizens, certification bodies, and the European Standardization System will be also covered.

Attendees will have a clearer view on the current standardization activities related to the proposed Act and will be able to contribute to the discussions between policy makers and standardizers on e.g. the following questions:

  • What is the role of standardisation towards the draft Cybersecurity Act?
  • Where are the ESOs active to support the certifications schemes?
  • Which domains should ESOs work on in priority?
