IPACSO : Innovation Framework for Privacy & Cyber Security Market Opportunities, supported by the European Commission.

Two years after the adoption of the EU Cyber Security Strategy, coinciding with the announcement of the Digital Single Market Strategy of which cyber security is an important component, the 2nd High-level evaluation Conference provided an overview of the state of play of the implementation of the five main priorities of the Strategy and showcase highlights of its main actions.

As IPACSO is part of the NIS WG3 steering committee it has particular interest in progression of the proposal for a Network and Information Security Directive, the EU cyber security industrial strategy and the next steps for capacity building for cyber defense and fighting Cyber Crime. The NIS Plenary on 27th May provided a timely opportunity to reassess the enablers and barriers of the European Cyber Security market in line with the strategic research agenda formulation.  Of interest to the participants were the real life stories of innovation and start-ups emerging in Europe from R&D activities and again Paul Timmers mentioned some of the IPACSO winners of these innovation awards.
