Fragmentation: Europe’s cybersecurity challenge

Virtual event (via GoToWebinar) 

20 May 2021, 10.00 - 11.30 CET

As the digital transformation of Europe's economy and society accelerates, vital sectors such as transport, energy, health and many other industries are interconnected as never before, making cybersecurity and resiliency a top priority for policymakers and business alike. The European Commission is tackling the issue across multiple fronts through its new EU Cybersecurity Strategy, which is very welcome. But as the cybersecurity policy initiatives multiply, European manufacturers working hard to integrate cybersecurity across their businesses are facing an increasingly fragmented requirements landscape. What is the way forward?

Instead of tackling cybersecurity vertically, through the Machinery Directive review, the Radio Equipment Directive and the Low Voltage Directive, to name but a few, Orgalim is proposing a horizontal approach to cybersecurity for networkable products within NLF. Will this be enough to ensure the security of the networkable products and help building the Single market for cybersecurity? How will it relate to the NIS Directive review? And what about the role of certification schemes under the Cybersecurity Act?

Join this event as some of Europe's most advanced manufacturing leaders discuss these timely issues with senior policy makers and give their reactions to the European Commission's updated Industrial Strategy, which is set to be published shortly before.

More information available soon.
