Current Challenges in the Field of Cybersecurity – Implications for Romania

On April 25, 2018, the European Institute of Romania (IER) organized a round-table about “Opportunities and Challenges in the New Digital Age. Implications for Romania ” at the Romanian Academy headquarters. RAISA – The Romanian Association for Information Security Assurance was represented at this event by Assoc.Prof.Dr. Ioan-Cosmin MIHAI – Vice President of RAISA, as coordinator of the study “Current challenges in the field of cybersecurity – Implications for Romania”.

During this round table were discussed the 3rd and 4th studies of the Strategy and Policy Studies project – SPOS 2017:

  • Romania and the Unique Digital Market of the European Union. Opportunities and challenges;
  • Current Challenges in Cybersecurity – Impact and Contribution of Romania in the Field.

Mr. Ioan-Cosmin MIHAI, Vice-President of RAISA, presented the findings of the study “Current Challenges in Cyber Security. Impact and Romania’s contribution to the field“, stating that cyber threats are constantly increasing, both in terms of their number and complexity. Cyber security requires a legislative framework tailored both to the new cyber threats and to the need for respect for civil rights, aligned as basic principles in national defense strategies of states. For the development of the cybersecurity culture, the most important levers are education and research, public-private partnerships and cooperation mechanisms at European level.
