On October 17, FHNW participated in the “Cyber risk management from the SME point of view” webinar in Cyberwatching.eu (the European observatory of research and innovation in the context of cybersecurity and privacy). Although cyber threats for SMEs are significant, it seems SMEs are not aware and capable enough to protect themselves and do not consider the risk of cyber-attacks in their business model.

Samuel Fricker (Ph.D., Professor at FHNW University of Applied Sciences and assistant professor at Blekinge Institute of Technology) presented SMESEC project (a framework to provide a variety of cybersecurity tools and training content) and the results of a research report based on this project. Also, he invited SMEs for the SMESEC beta programme.
