In an increasingly connected world where information circulates rapidly and where the Internet and mobiles are used daily by individuals and business, where new digital payments solutions are being developed, ensuring security in cyberspace is a high priority for EU lawmakers. The fight against cybercrime can also reconcile safety and customers’ choice to ensure that the Internet and the mobile channels keep their promises of delivering economic growth for the EU.
Possible discussion points:
- How can efforts by the Member States be better coordinated by the EU policy-makers?
- The obligation to notify cyber attacks and security breaches: impact on the EU business?
- How will unclear legal concepts and definitions in Cybersecurity regulations be resolved at the EU level?
- The US is likely to apply a more voluntary approach to notifications from private companies. Will EU lose competitiveness and which role should Cybersecurity play in the transatlantic dialogue?
- How can the EU avoid duplication of regulatory frameworks and to which extent should Member States keep jurisdiction over Cybersecurity?
- The ECB and the EBA: new EU policy makers and the security imperatives applied to the digital payments
- The role of new technologies to ameliorate customer protection: when security is not incompatible with convenience.
