DEP EU Cybersecurity Resilience, Coordination and Cybersecurity Ranges

Programme: Digital Europe Programme

Call: DIGITAL-ECCC-2022-CYBER-03-SEC-5G-INFRASTRUCTURE EU Cybersecurity Resilience, Coordination and Cybersecurity Ranges

The Digital Europe Programme aims to accelerate the economic recovery and shape the digital transformation of Europe’s society and economy, bringing benefits to everyone, but in particular to small and medium-sized enterprises.

Outcomes and Deliverables of This Call:

The expected outcomes will be a strong capacity in the Member States to react in a coordinated way to large-scale cybersecurity incidents, as well as top-level cybersecurity ranges offering advanced skills, knowledge and testing platforms.

The implementation of this topic has two main objectives:

  1. To strengthen the capacity of cybersecurity actors in the Union to monitor cyber-attacks and threats and supply chain risks, to react jointly against large incidents, and to improve relevant knowledge, skills and training. This objective will be pursued through the implementation of the Blueprint and the future Joint Cyber Unit considering the important role of the Computer Security Incident Response Teams (CSIRTs) network and of the Cyber Crisis Liaison Organization Network (CyCLONe).
  2. To create, interconnect and strengthen Cybersecurity ranges at European, national and regional level as well as within and across critical infrastructures, including in but not limited to sectors covered by the NIS Directive, in view to share knowledge and cybersecurity threat intelligence between stakeholders in the Member States, better monitor cybersecurity threats, and respond jointly to cyber-attacks.
