The Cybersecurity Act will establish a European cybersecurity certification framework for ICT products, services and processes. Current schemes may be incorporated into this new framework, or may need to evolve to the fit the regulatory changes. The Conference will cover the potential effect on current schemes and regulatory mandates like Common Criteria, eIDAS, Payment Services Directive 2, GDPR, ISO 27001, and EU standards for cryptographic modules. The conference will also cover the effect on current private schemes like GSMA, GlobalPlatform, EMVCo, PCI PTS, PCI SPoC, Eurosmart, Felica, Mifare, and OWASP and will discuss the new potential candidate schemes for key industry verticals such as IoT, cloud, communications, payments, automotive, and more.
Conference topics will be of interest to the entire standards community, including Certification Bodies, Evaluation Laboratories, Researchers, Evaluators, Policy Makers, Product Developers, Sellers and Buyers interested in the specification, development, evaluation, and certification of IT security. The Cybersecurity Act will also affect organizations beyond the EU, including government schemes, testing laboratories, product developers, and technology companies in North America and Asia.
As host city for the European Parliament and the Council of the EU, Brussels is at the center of efforts to increase the safety of the EU’s digital environment. ENISA, the EU Agency for Network and Information Security, is empowered by the EU Cyber Act to support EU Member States against cybersecurity threats and attacks. The city also hosts many agencies, non-government organizations, and private companies that support these efforts.
The conference will take place in Brussels on 2-3 December, starting with a plenary keynote session then breaking into 8 separate tracks covering technology and certification issues, customer requirements, policy, and market issues.
Industry Alignment: Efforts by the international technical community to align frameworks with government standards while responding to the needs of the market.
Industrial Strategies: An analysis of current voluntary certification standards for industrial automation and energy, and potential transitions to mandatory international certification.
IoT Challenges: A survey of the large, fast-growing certification landscape for connected devices and the cost, performance, and power constraints that necessitate security compromises.
Public Policy: Updates from public schemes and associations on the development of standards in response to evolving security risks across multiple sectors.
Cloud and GDPR Frameworks: A look at cloud scheme initiatives and efforts to leverage existing certifications in the transition to frameworks that align with international regulations such as GDPR.
Outlook/Opportunities: Updates on leading government initiatives for global certification and perspectives on the business benefits of security evaluations.
Standards for Success: Review of standardization efforts under various national frameworks (a key factor for CSA success) and the limitations of standards in a real-world environment.
Innovations in Assurance: Best practices for maintaining certification in the face of new cybersecurity regulations, expanding product lines, and frequent product updates.
