Registration link

Objectives of the event
ECSO and its members DIGITALSME are organising an open meeting of Working Group 4 in partnership with CLUSIT and CNA ICT.

This event will gather various SMEs (members and non-members of ECSO) across the EU and beyond to engage in a pragmatic dialogue with public administration and private sector, to identify the challenges faced y SMEs and define together concrete actions to be taken in the context of the implementation of the cPPP on cybersecurity.

Participants will be invited to reflect upon the following questions:

  • What are the existing investment mechanisms specific for SMEs and regions? What are the main barriers to use EU funding?
  • How to foster the dialogue with large companies/integrators?
  • What is the specific position of SMEs on the certification process (for both users  and providers)?
  • What is the value of an efficient territorial cooperation on cybersecurity (both on industrial policy and risk management)?
  • How to boost the demand for SMEs solutions and facilitate the SMEs' access to public procurement markets? Could a "Made in EU" label and its related catalogue facilitate the procurement oriented towards EU SMEs? How should it be set?

In order to have a fruitful discussion, the event will be structured around 4 panels. Agenda

We are delighted to invite representatives of SMEs and start ups to register via the dedicated registration form before 8 May at the latest. Don't hesitate to contact Mr. Danilo D'Elia (danilo.delia(at) for further information.

DG REGIO Desk Officers training: "Showcase of best practices in cybersecurity measures and projects"

Apr 28, 2017, Brussels

ECSO is supporting DG REGIO in the organisation of a training on Cybersecurity measures and Best practices.

The aim of the requested training is to receive a more horizontal perception and understanding on cyber matters inside the public administration structures and the business (with focus on SMEs) or operations (i.e. health, industry, etc.). The speakers will show, especially to people that are not experts, why cybersecurity must be considered as a forethought and not afterthought, and how it impacts us across society and the economy (interconnectedness, link to different verticals, etc.).

This is a close event.
