Increasing Digital Strategic Authonomy in the EU cybersecurity - ECSO (2022)
The definitions of Autonomy and Sovereignty vary according to the interlocutors and countries as they have different interests, needs and understanding of the concepts. The methodology proposed here considers diverse points of view, allowing to identify such priorities, starting from the identification of strategic digital issues and then moving to the examination of cybersecurity challenges pertaining to them and the needed strategic solutions.
The analysis allowed also to recognize how certain topics like IoT, AI, encryption, microprocessors or education and training are and will remain strategic now and in the future.
This study has identified five main objectives linked to the specific challenges leading to the outline of ten main recommendations that could constitute the basis for a European public – private flagship programme on European CYbersecurity Sovereignty and Autonomy (ECYSA), combining interests of the private sector with those of the public sector.
