Cybersecurity, like many other knowledge-intensive areas, has technical aspects and economic drivers that are inextricably intertwined. This seminar aims to explore, with some practical, business-centred examples, the way more than 50% of the European economy and 2/3 of the European workforce should be looking at cybersecurity. Paraphrasing the NIST framework (identify - protect - detect - respond - recover), the economic aspects for SMEs are dealt with: increasing awareness, getting equipped, and building the last line of defence.
