ENISA’s Head of Administration gave an overview of the latest challenges in the area of cybersecurity as these unravel with the latest technological trends such as IoT. He spoke on how these can be tackled while maintaining a balance between privacy and the fundamental rights of citizens and at the same time support industry development and the EU economy through enabling factors such as cybersecurity. In this scope, Paulo Empadinhas commented: “the new agreements on the data protection regulation and the NIS directive are an important step, enhancing both the privacy of EU citizens and privacy and security in the EU industry, creating a trusted environment and the further advancement of the DSM”.
