Digitising the European industry: Cybersecurity challenges

PubAffairs Bruxelles

The Network and Information Security (NIS) Directive was published in the Official Journal of the European Union on 19 July 2016 and it represents one of the main steps towards the creation of a pan-European digital market along with the launch of the Digital Single Market strategy and the Data Protection reform. While digital technologies allow companies to operate in a more efficient way, reduce their costs and exploit new market opportunities, they also expose them more to cybersecurity threats.

Target Audience

PubAffairs Bruxelles is a cross-sectorial network of professionals working in the fields of public and regulatory affairs correlated to the European Union. PubAffairs Bruxelles aims at creating an open platform to foster debate, information exchange and the development of ideas among its members, establishing a diverse community which encompasses young, as well as experienced professionals. PubAffairs Bruxelles welcomes participants from public and regulatory bodies such as associations, federations, NGOs, as well as regional, national and European Institutions. We also welcome participants from the private sector, including consultancies, corporations and business. In addition, as one of PubAffairs Bruxelles fundamental principles is to represent as far as possible the range of individuals concerned with the European Union policy making, we believe that the participation of academics, think-tanks, researchers, media and active citizens enriches the debate further.
