- Commission gives Europe’s First Innovation Framework for Privacy and Cyber Security Market Opportunities (IPACSO) Seal of Approval -

IPACSONew Framework Puts Europe Firmly on Trajectory for Becoming World Leaders in Privacy and Cyber Security Innovation
An EU-funded consortium is hoping to transform Europe’s competitiveness in privacy and cyber security (PACS) innovation, through a dynamic new framework which supports ICT security innovators find their road to market in a faster, more effective and efficient manner.

For the first time Europe’s cyber security entrepreneurs will have access to a €1 million, state-of-the-art knowledge and decision-support tool to bolster their commercial excellence. It is hoped this framework will ensure this sector, which has an estimated value in Europe of €21.2 billion with forecasted growth reaching €32.5 billion in 2020, can be an even greater contributor to the Euro-wide economy.

The IPACSO Framework is the culmination of a two-year project spearheaded by a diverse range of industry, academic, R&D and policymaking experts [1]. Its development was enabled by extensive research into the PACS industry and regulatory environment as well as intensive collaborative with stakeholders through workshops, training and proactive outreach. The output is an important knowledge asset for researchers/innovators, cyber security companies and investors involved in the PACS space.

IPACSO project coordinator, Zeta Dooly says: “We are delighted to have the project formally approved by the Commission and given ‘excellent’ in its assessment. Its completion marks an important milestone in Europe’s Strategic Research Agenda set out in H2020 [2]. We concur with the Commissions Technical Report that says ‘there is potential for a very relevant impact of this project especially for the future cyber security cPPP and related activities’.
