EOS releases new Position Paper Calling For Greater European Digital Autonomy

29 November 2019

Given the speed and complexity with which the global digital economy is evolving, EOS is keen to ensure that the EU is not left behind in the global digital market place, and has the means and capabilities to develop its own digital autonomy and secure its cybersecurity independently from third-countries.

Today, Europe’s society and economy are dependent on digital infrastructures and services, and the cyber-security of these underlying elements must be ensured across increasingly complex value chains. Sourcing critical cybersecurity elements and services in Europe is the only solution that guarantees compliance with European values[1], protection of Intellectual Property Rights (IPRs) and continuity of operational capabilities. As such EOS recommends developing digital autonomy “enablers” ranging from skills to cyber-threats detection and response mechanisms.

By examining the key risks and opportunities for EU digital autonomy, across five distinct digital products and services, in this paper EOS has identified a range of recommendations for consideration and development by EU policymakers and regulators. EOS remains committed to sharing the perspective of the European security industry and research community on the challenges and opportunities for the European digital autonomy. While there is no single-sweep solution to making the EU digitally autonomous, the EOS recommendations outlined in this paper aim to provide an overview of the practical policy and regulatory actions that might form part of a comprehensive package of measure EU policymakers could implement going forward.
