Cybersecurity. Current Situation and Future Challenges
Professional cyberattacks by organised criminals and politically motivated actors pose an increasingly serious threat to Germany and the whole European region. Cybersecurity, that is the ability to counter such attacks, is a central plank of successful digitalisation. It creates trust in the digital systems which are in daily use. Digital sovereignty is closely intertwined with cybersecurity. Together they form the foundation for self-determined and trusted activity in cyberspace.
Cybersecurity should be considered a task for society as a whole: policy makers, business, academia as well as citizens are all affected. This IMPULSE provides an overview of the issues together with suggestions as to how all involved stakeholders can help to increasing cybersecurity. The cornerstone must be an ambitious cybersecurity strategy designed by policymakers.
