The FIC Observatory organised a webinar on “Cybersecurity, trusted cloud and strategic autonomy: a NL-FR exchange of views” on Wednesday 17 March 2021, from 08h30 to 10h00.
The “Strategic Autonomy and Cybersecurity in the Netherlands” report published on February 25 by the Dutch Cyber Security Council (CSR) states that “the challenges and threats to strategic autonomy in cybersecurity are too important not to be viewed from a broad perspective and be taken up at the top. “
The rapid spread of the multifaceted concept of strategic autonomy across Europe, particularly in the Netherlands and France, has been catalyzed by recent major statements from European public leaders and institutions, namely the EU Commissioner for the Internal Market Thierry Breton who declared in May that “Europe’s cybersecurity is about to change dimension”, French President Macron who announced a billion euros investment plan for cybersecurity, or the encouraging development of the European sovereign cloud GAIA-X. Digital trust challenges have now reached the top priorities in the political agendas !
What is a European trusted cloud? Are Dutch and French needs identical in this matter? Do sovereign cybersecurity tools really make sense for private companies? Can EU standards and certifications provide sufficient guarantee in terms of cybersecurity?
