Cybersecurity-voluntary codes of conduct must be encouraged

Cybersecurity-voluntary codes of conduct must be encouraged

Even though DIGITALEUROPE welcomes the European Commission push for cybersecurity – highlighted last week in President Juncker’s State-of-the-Union speech and presented today to the media – we are concerned by the potential consequences of an EU certification and labelling framework which is not fit-for-purpose

In this respect, DIGITALEUROPE firmly believes in the importance of common international cybersecurity standards and certification – as well as in the need for close involvement of the industry. We believe that voluntary codes of conduct must be encouraged and considered a more trustworthy and feasible approach. It would enhance cybersecurity globally. It would also lead to fairer and safer access to global markets for European companies.

In addition, you can see DIGITALEUROPE’s press statement released on 13 September 2017: “DIGITALEUROPE welcomes the decision of the European Commission to beef up cybersecurity and recognises that joint efforts are necessary to address cybercrime with no delay”.
