On October 28th, the Cybersecurity Awards ceremony concluded the Cybersecurity Week Luxembourg (18-28 October) organised by SECURITYMADEIN.LU.
With some twenty events held for the most part in a hybrid manner and bringing together more than 1,000 participants, Pascal Steichen, CEO of SECURITYMADEIN.LU, drew a very positive balance sheet of the past 10 days, the subjects of which included cryptography, the man-machine relationship, data protection and legislation. It is worth noting that this year a cyber delegation from France and counterparts from Saarland came to Luxembourg for exchanges with a view to interregional collaboration.
In addition, 3 major announcements were made:
–The establishment of a single portal for cybersecurity in Luxembourg, including the objectives and priorities of the national strategy, as well as the activities of the ecosystem: www.cybersecurity.lu, initiated by SECURITYMADEIN.LU, the Haut Commissariat à la protection nationale (HCPN) and Luxinnovation;
–Luxembourg's application for the presidency of the newly established European Cyber Security Competence Centre;
