ETNO welcomes the revamp of the EU Cybersecurity Strategy and related initiatives, which were announced by President Jean-Claude Juncker in his State of the Union speech, which took place on 13 of September. As Europe accelerates innovation in smart, connected products such as autonomous vehicles and the Internet of Things, a resilient cyberspace is essential to ensure consumer trust and to embrace the Industry 4.0 opportunities.
