The Institute for European Studies, in collaboration with iMinds-SMIT (Studies on Media, Information and Telecommunication) and LSTS (Law, Science, Technology and Society Studies) of the Vrije Universiteit Brussel, kindly invites you to the Policy Forum "Cyber-Security in the European Union" on 26 April at 12:00.

How can we achieve a resilient and secure cyberspace while fostering an open and free Internet? What are the EU's limits in building a resilient and secure cyberspace? And how does the EU's new cyber-security strategy affect the Internet industry? In February 2013, the European Commission and the High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy published a joint Cybersecurity Strategy of the European Union: An Open, Safe and Secure Cyberspace. Join us in this Policy Forum, as academic and policy experts debate cyber-security and its impact on the European Union, citizens and Internet companies.

Against this background, we have assembled the following panel to discuss cyber-security in the European Union.

  • Alessandra Falcinelli, Policy Officer at DG CNECT, European Commission
  • Chris Gow, Cisco, Chair of the Privacy and Security Group at DIGITALEUROPE
  • Prof. David Wall, Professor of Criminology and Head of SASS at Durham University
