Prof. Dr. Helmbrecht used his speech to acknowledge that new technologies are re-shaping the cyber landscape, with artificial intelligence and Blockchain emerging as disruptive technologies that affect our daily lives.

“In the current perspective, cybersecurity is becoming an increasing challenge for our societies. Our online rights, including democracy, are at risk, and there is a high potential of using the cyber-space for sabotage, espionage, and warfare.

In terms of certification, ENISA welcomes the proposal to address certification in the EU context. I believe that it will help improve cybersecurity and provide an opportunity for manufacturers to deliver products incorporating security by design”, stated Mr. Helmbrecht.
