As the communications partner to Interreg CYBER Europe, ECSO organised a webinar on 23 November in order to share best practices on securing access-to-market for cybersecurity SMEs and start-ups particularly in light of the ‘new normal’ posed by COVID-19 and beyond.

ECSO Policy Manager, Milda Kaklauskaite began proceedings by presenting the new ECSO Cybersecurity Made In Europe label, an industry-driven marketing tool to help European cybersecurity companies gain recognition at regional and international levels. 

Ulrich Seldeslachts, the CEO of LSEC, then gave the perspective of an issuing partner of the label, arguing that there had long been an appetite for an initiative of this sort from his conversations with cybersecurity users and operators.

Jason Davies of Cyber Wales then provided his take on some of the challenges facing smaller cybersecurity players in Europe, asserting that the label was a key solution, while the efforts of cyber clusters and global initiatives were also crucial in lowering the barriers to market access.
