    DescriptionANALYSIS As Germany took the helm of the European Union in July 2020, the world was battling through an unprecedented crisis.

    But while the country’s EU presidency program (PDF) is understandably focused on Covid-19, cybersecurity issues are still high on the agenda.

    “The EU has had a reactive focus on cybersecurity, but the crisis – and working from home – has made innovation necessary, and it is moving higher up the priority list,” says Vladlena Benson, professor of Cybersecurity Management at Aston University and board member of the ISACA UK Central Chapter.
