The event is moderated by Aapo Cederberg

There is much room for improvement in the cybersecurity culture of small and medium-sized enterprises. SME companies have been impacted by the global pandemic and, therefore, critical investments are being postponed without taking account the increase in the likelihood of being hit by a devastating cyberattack. A large number of SME companies have not carried out cyber risk analysis and thus the management’s cyber situational awareness is not at an adequate level.


  • Small and medium enterprises (SMEs) constitute 99% of businesses in the EU and face diverse cybersecurity challenges including low management awareness and commitment;
  • In a time of increased threats and remote work, a low-security budget and lack of basic cyber skills can seriously impact SMEs’ competitiveness;
  • By strengthening resilience across the whole value chain, the EU can take full advantage of digital transformation and the benefits of a digital single market.

The threats have now been identified. Is magic needed or is there a solution to this without super natural powers?
