Panel Discussion: Differences Between Lightweight Certification Schemes in Europe. Will FITCEM be the solution? (S22b)

As we all know, Europe is one of the leading players in the world in terms of cybersecurity certification. The main European countries issuing certifications, such as France, the Netherlands, Germany and Spain, have created their own lightweight/Fixed-time methodologies (CPSN, BSPA, BSZ and LINCE). All of them with many similarities, but also with quite a few national differences within them. Thi panel discussion will open the discussion among the relevant stakeholders for European recognition of these schemes. The panel will also discuss on the future European fixed-time methodology lead by JTC13 WG3, called FITCEM, which aims to unify all European schemes into a single one. The panel will discuss the potential impact that FITCEM will have both technically and in terms of the European market to the different stakeholders (manufacturers, laboratories, certification bodies, institutional agencies, etc.).
