ENISA has participated in the key cybersecurity event, EuroDIG, focussing on ‘’Who sets the rules for the Internet?”.
ENISA Expert, Christoffer Karsberg took part in a key panel on “Public Private Partnership for fighting cyber-crime, and safeguarding cyber security”. He outlined the Agency’s prevention role as a body of expertise, and highlighted ENISA's range of reports, studies and actions.
"The Public Private Partnerships (PPP) model is a good way to enhance cybersecurity, for instance when it concerns cross-sector and cross-border dependencies," says Mr Karsberg. "For a PPP to succeed there need to be clear incentives for all parties in the partnership. Key factors are trust, commitment and patience."
High level speakers at the conference included: EU Commissioner Neelie Kroes;Secretary General, Council of Europe, Thorbjørn Jagland; Sweden's Foreign Minister Carl Bildt and Minister for Information Technology, Anna-Karin Hatt; Vice President, European Parliament, Alexander Alvaro; and President EuroISPA, Malcolm Hutty. Other speakers included MEPs and leading figures from the network and information security world.
The European dialogue on Internet Governance (IG) (EuroDIG) is an open platform for informal discussions on public policy issues regarding Internet Governance (IG) between stakeholders from all over Europe. It was created in 2008 by European stakeholders in the field of IG. EuroDIG is a network open to all European stakeholders to discuss the challenges and opportunities facing the future of the Internet. Previous EuroDIG meetings have taken place in Strasbourg (2008), Geneva (2009), Madrid (2010), and Belgrade (2011).
Objectives: The purpose of EuroDIG is twofold:
1. to help European stakeholders to exchange their views and best practices on the issues to be discussed at global United Nations lead IGF meetings; and to identify common ground which is shared by all European stakeholders, as well as highlighting the diversity of experience of the different European stakeholders;
2. to raise awareness about the importance of the IGF context.
