UBITECH joins the European Cyber Security Organisation and shapes the future of cybersecurity strategic research and innovation in Europe

The Members of the Board of the European Cyber Security Organisation (ECSO) approved, on June 21, 2017, UBITECH’s application to become a full member of ECSO, a fully self-financed non-for-profit organisation under the Belgian law, established in June 2016. ECSO represents the industry-led contractual counterpart to the European Commission for the implementation of the Cyber Security contractual Public-Private Partnership (cPPP).

The main objective of ECSO is to support all types of initiatives or projects that aim to develop, promote, encourage European cybersecurity, and in particular to foster and protect from cyber threats the growth of the European Digital Single Market; to develop the cybersecurity market in Europe and the growth of a competitive cybersecurity and ICT industry, with an increased market position; and to develop and implement cybersecurity solutions for the critical steps of trusted supply chains, in sectoral applications where Europe is a leader.

UBITECH has expressed its interest to participate in the Working Groups concerning the standardisation, certification, labelling and supply chain management (WG1), the market deployment, investments and international collaboration (WG2), and the sectoral demand (WG3).
