Keynote presentation: "Moving towards a trustworthy and resilient European cyber security ecosystem"

Cyber security is an essential enabling factor for the development and exploitation of digital technologies and innovation and is, therefore, inextricably linked to future prospects for growth, job creation and Europe's response to environmental and societal goals. The significance of cyber security is an ever-growing issue with political, societal and economic implications. The talk will look at the global trends and the challenges for a trustworthy and competitive European cyber security ecosystem and for the creation of secure and resilient infrastructures.
