Cybersecurity: ETNO calls for responsibility across the ecosystem and incentives to industry-led solutions

European digital leadership strictly depends on enforcing security. This is the key message in ETNO’s first 2018 Position Paper on the EU Cybersecurity package, which comes as the EU institutions speed up the policy and legislative debate around this key challenge.

While telcos have a long-standing experience in providing trusted security standards and in preventing data breaches, cybersecurity is a shared responsibility of all actors in the value-chain. With the industrial internet, IoT and 5G coming up, intense collaboration and co-dependence in the digital ecosystem will be the norm.

On the occasion of ETNO’s 25th anniversary, #ThinkDigital interviewed Enrique Medina Malo, Chief Policy Officer at Telefónica Group (left) and John Foster, Director of Strategy and CDO at Telefónica Digital (right).

In the interview, Medina Malo expresses his views and concerns regarding the future of telcos and its enablers. Moreover, he has 2 key messages to EU regulators. 
Foster believes that we should clearly be “enthusiastic” about the digital future but some risks should be taken into account, when looking ahead.

It's quite difficult for people to distinguish between more & less secure smart gadgets. We think that consumers should be better informed about #cybersecurity of products & services http://bit.ly/2kxFCdg  #IoT #CES2018  Link to tweet
