Pan-European Cybersecurity requires mutual exchange of classified information among Member States.
Therefore building trust is the first step to go. The NIS-Directive represents an important step towards
improved cyber security in the EU. Trust, cooperation, and sharing information are the key elements.
Additionally, a framework for knowledge transfer from experienced and advanced member states to less
advanced states has been established. Together, the NIS-Directive and GDPR will significantly increase
the level of cyber security in the EU and may serve as an example for respective future cooperation
beyond national boundaries, which do not exist in the borderless virtual world anyway. As only 11% of
the global information security workforce are women, it is very important to integrate as much women
as men in the national implementation process to get an entire view over the topic.
