How can essential operators be better prepared to face upcoming cybersecurity challenges, whether they are located within the EU or elsewhere in the world?
The European Commission and the High Representative have proposed concrete measures to ensure safety and security of essential operators, betting on cooperation across member states and across EU structures.
These concrete measures can be found in this cybersecurity factsheet that shows how European citizens and businesses rely on digital services & technologies. It also highlights the rise of cyber incidents and attacks, but also underlines that awareness and knowledge of cybersecurity issues is still insufficient. The factsheet sums-up The Commission and High Representative’s different proposals to reinforce the EU’s resilience to cyber-attacks.
European Commission President, Jean-Claude Juncker could not have said it better “Cyber-attacks can be more dangerous to the stability of democracies than guns and tanks (…) Cyber-attacks know no borders and no one is immune.”
80% of European companies have experienced at least one cybersecurity incident last year (2015), according to PwC 2016 global state of information security survey. This is the biggest increase in Cyber-attacks in a decade.
In a context where attackers have unprecedented opportunities, means and scale of operations, exposed software must be hardened using the strongest techniques. TrustInSoft uses formal methods to ensure the total absence of vulnerabilities in legacy software, developed in simpler times and used in the infrastructures of essential operators.
