EC Continues to Move Forward with European Cybersecurity Strategy
The European Commission (EC) is inviting proposals, until February 15, 2023, for innovative cybersecurity solutions and is launching a call for expression of interest to select entities in member states that will host and operate cross-border cyber threat detection platforms.
The EC invitation on proposals for innovative cybersecurity solutions and for application of EU funding under the Digital Europe Program is intended to support the implementation of the new rules on cybersecurity under the Network and Information Systems (NIS2 Directive) into national legislation. It will also support the Security Operations Centers across the EU to collect and share information on cyber incidents. The aim is to help boost the cybersecurity resilience and capacity to protect, detect, defend, and deter cyber-attacks. In another development, EC, in coordination with the European Cybersecurity Competence Center (ECCC), is launching a call for expression of interest to select entities in member states, which will host and operate cross-border cyber threat detection platforms, each bringing together relevant public entities from several member states as well as private entities. Announced in the 2020 European Cybersecurity Strategy, and more recently in the Joint Communication on European Cyber Defense Policy, this is the first phase in the creation of a cross-border infrastructure of European Security Operations Centers (SOC), powered by artificial intelligence and other cutting-edge technologies.
