The fight against cyber threats is necessary to ensure that the digital society has the possibility to deliver economic growth in the European Union. The discussion has been put high on the EU-agenda and the last few years there has been an ongoing discussion on how to improve the conditions.
What is the most critical issues to solve in order to boost growth?
What investments are needed on the EU level to ensure that a common cybersecurity strategy is implemented in such a way that a level playing field is achieved?
How should the EU avoid duplication of institutional structures? To what extent should the member states be able to decide on cybersecurity governance? How can unclear legal concepts and definitions in cybersecurity regulations be solved at the EU level?
How can the efforts made by the member states be better coordinated by the EU policy-makers?
How can the EU avoid duplication of regulatory frameworks? To what extent should Member States keep jurisdiction over cybersecurity?
Today the differences between the 28 member states are extensive. Will EU legislation solve this discrepancy?
