Teaching Cybersecurity in High-School-survey_report

Cybersecurity is a major concern for our societies at large. Children start using the internet at an early age and more than 90% of young Europeans are online. Using the internet brings a lot of benefits linked to information and communication but it comes with certain risks: privacy violation, identity theft, ransomware, fraudulent usage of debit cards, etc. It is therefore of paramount importance that new generations are made aware and kept updated about the major threats, new technologies as well as appropriate individual and collective behaviors in order to reduce risks.

Security Threat Landscape

Driven by digitalization, information sharing has been experiencing exponential growth in the past few years. In turn, one’s eagerness to better prepare and protect depends on the ability to change the attitude from “need to know” to “need to share”. Digital technologies, most notably Artificial Intelligence (AI), have shaped decision-making, everyday communication, life, and work, hence highlighting the importance of maintaining the online economy and ensuring its prosperity.

Cybersecurity Top Findings & Key Takeaways

Cybersecurity impacts every ICT domain. In the following we consider the CONCORDIA taxonomy of domains:
  • Device/IoT-Centric Security: Internet of Things (IoT) can be defined as “the networked interconnection of everyday objects, equipped with ubiquitous intelligence”[1]. IoT, edge computing, and smart devices are changing the environment in many ways, including smart transportation, sustainable mobility, smart cities, e-health, smart vehicles, and UAVs, just to name the few. The exponential growth of connected devices (from minuscule sensors to bigger machines), which, according to Intel[2] are expected to reach 200 billion by 2020, is revolutionizing current IT systems. The existence of billions of resource-constrained devices connected to the Internet introduces fundamental risks that can threaten users’ life and personal sphere.

Cybersecurity Roadmap for Europe

Addressing European digital sovereignty only from a technological viewpoint and addressing just technological sovereignty is too narrow. When discussing the cybersecurity roadmap, it is necessary to take a holistic approach having in mind the global aim of European digital sovereignty. CONCORDIA has identified seven dimensions to address a holistic view of European digital sovereignty.

  1. Research and Innovation
  2. Education and Skills
  3. Economics
  4. Investments
  5. Legal and Policy
  6. Certification and Standardization
  7. Community Building
