Cybersecurity

DIGITALEUROPE is committed to help ensure cybersecurity; from critical infrastructures to consumer devices. We promote the adoption of best practices, such as encryption, and the strengthening of cooperation between governments and with industry.

Cyberthreats presents a major obstacle to Europe’s path to prosperity. Economic loss due to cybercrime is predicted to reach € 2.5 trillion by 2020, and 74% of the world’s businesses can expect to be hacked in the coming year. Unfortunately, only 32% of European businesses have a cybersecurity strategy. Such global threat requires a coordinated global response. 

At DIGITALEUROPE we support initiatives improving cyber hygiene and the resilience of the digital economy. To this end, our areas of focus include:

  • The proposed Cybersecurity Act, creating a harmonised EU market for cybersecurity certification schemes
  • Implementation of the Directive on the security of network and information systems (NIS Directive)  – take a look at the implementation tracker
Areas covered
  • Certification
  • Cyber-hygiene
  • Vulnerability stockpiling
