A policy-driven comparative analysisSecurity Affairs
Global connectivity has triggered global digitization, creating cross-border social networks to communicate and disseminate information. The use of digital identity for democratic procedures is becoming a reality and public services are moving towards the use of digital tools to implement simplified procedures. Businesses around the world have benefited from the implementation of information technology tools, and Industry 4.0 increasingly relies on cloud and internet services. Likewise, the e-commerce and platform economy has grown in ways that were unthinkable just 30 years ago.
All this has contributed to creating a new and broader concept of “cyberspace”, where the notion of security is increasingly relevant. Thus, the very omnipresence of digitalization has made cybersecurity no longer just a subject of concern for IT specialists, but a central cross-cutting factor in securing our future digital society. Recently, both the increase in the use of digital tools linked to Covid-19 and the conflict in Ukraine, followed by an escalation in the use of armed cyberattacks, have raised questions about the security of cyberspace and how which the EU should deal with.
This study, edited by Professor Luigi Martino and Nada Gamal, approaches the subject from a multidisciplinary point of view, taking into account critical infrastructures, skills, strategic autonomy, AI, cybercrime, privacy and use of space. Starting from a European perspective, the authors examine the regulatory achievements in this field and examine the best practices for the implementation of rules and standards. Based on a holistic approach, the explanations and policy recommendations of the different chapters aim to define the role of the European Union in this dynamic and constantly changing world that is cyberspace.
