Event description
Webinar on cybersecurity in light of Russian aggression against Ukraine and the EU with Luigi Martino

About this event

According to studies, cybercrime constitutes half of all the crimes perpetrated in some member-state and accounts for losses worth billions of euros per year. Nevertheless, most hacks happen via known exploits, where hackers know the IT networks better than companies and governments.

While Europe has stepped up by adopting a cybersecurity strategy and the NIS Directive or the new European cybersecurity Industrial, Technology and Research Competence Centre, we see a significant variation on the member-state level.

These different strategies and priorities regarding cyber defence and security by member states may be an increased safety risk for European digital infrastructure as a whole. In light of Russian aggression against Ukraine in a war not just on the conventional battlefield, but in cyberspace the EU and especially its member states have to step up against a growing threat from totalitarian regimes such as Russia.

On the current cyber security situation in light of the Russia-Ukraine war, Luigi Martino will give a keynote speech via a Zoom webinar for the European Liberal Forum.

This event is organised by the European Liberal Forum in cooperation with NEOS Lab. Co-funded by the European Parliament. The views expressed herein are those of the speaker(s) alone. These views do not necessarily reflect those of the European Parliament and/or the European Liberal Forum.
