The breakfast debate, jointly organised by the European Union Agency for Network and Information Security (ENISA) and MEP Jan Philipp Albrecht has just been concluded in Strasbourg, France. Invited guests shared their views and discussed the upcoming challenges concerning information technology security in the European Union.

With the Internet of Things (IoT) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) advancing rapidly and having potential impact on our everyday lives, the participants were invited to join the debate surrounding the question of cybersecurity measures and standards. These new technological developments have the potential to create socio - economic opportunities, while changing the way that humans and machines interact and live, thus posing regulatory, ethical and liability challenges.

The participants included members of the European Parliament, the Commission, representatives of the Presidency of the Council of the European Union, Member states, industry, and academia, as well as the Chairperson and the Deputy Chairperson of the ENISA Management Board. Mariya Gabriel, Commissioner-Designate for the Digital Economy and Society opened the discussion with a keynote speech. ENISA’s Executive Director, Udo Helmbrecht, moderated the expert discussion and Q&A session.
