Cyber NEEDS and development: identifying the needs of Networks Enhancing the Economy, Development and Security (NEEDS)

On the 23rd and 24th of February 2015, the EUISS and the European Commission DG International cooperation and development (DG DEVCO) organised the international conference on cyber capacity building in Brussels.

Brussels-based and international experts and officials were invited to engage in a debate on cyber capacity building to promote further economic growth and social development.

The conference provided a comprehensive analysis of the needs and challenges in the areas of cybercrime and justice, protection and resilience of critical infrastructure, and resilient e-development. It emphasised in particular the importance of stakeholders’ needs assessment on multiple levels: the national, institutional and organisational, as well as in human resources and technical expertise.
