EU-US Cybersecurity Awareness Meeting in Brussels

Wednesday, June 06, 2012



On 12th, June, the EU-U.S. event on intermediaries in cyber-security awareness raising will take place in Brussels. The aim of the event is to get all potential intermediaries together to exchange experiences both from U.S. and EU side.

This event has been organised as part of the EU-U.S. Working Group on Cyber-security and Cyber-Crime expert sub-group on Awareness raising.

This is an event by invitation only. Attendance is open for intermediaries for awareness raising on cyber/Internet security: Member State administrations, regional and local government, academia/education, citizen's organisations, Internet service providers, technology equipment and software providers, social media, retailers, etc.

The aim of the event is to get intermediaries to exchange experiences both from U.S. and EU side (note: the ENISA Internet Security Week pilots with a number of Member States planned for later this year on cyber/Internet security awareness for the general public, thus not safety of children for instance, which is covered by a separate initiative).

The event is organised by the European Commission in co-operation with the European Network and Information Security Agency and the United States Department of Homeland Security.

The overall objective of the event is to bring intermediaries together in order to establish a reinforcing momentum in awareness raising and dissemination effort on topics pertaining to information security.

The agenda for the event can be accessed here.
