Pioneering EU Masters Programme in Cybersecurity Management & Data Sovereignty, equipping European SMEs and companies with essential cybersecurity management, regulatory, and technical skills.

Launched in October 2023 with a series of workshops at the National University of Science and Technology Politehnica of Bucharest, Digital4Security is a four-year, €20 million project created by a Consortium of 35 Partners from 14 countries. It is dedicated to equipping European small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and companies with comprehensive knowledge in cybersecurity management, regulatory compliance, and technical skills.

The mission of Digital4Security revolves around adaptability and responsiveness to market and industry demands, emphasising continuous evolution to address current and future cybersecurity risks effectively. It strives to support European companies, particularly SMEs, in minimizing security risks, constructing robust defences, and proficiently managing cyber incidents.

Additionally, Digital4Security aligns with the objectives of the DIGITAL Europe Programme by swiftly funnelling a substantial number of graduates into high-demand roles outlined in ENISA’s European Cybersecurity Skills Framework (ECSF). The ultimate goal is to reskill and upskill graduates, professionals, managers, and business leaders, empowering them to become ‘Cyber Confident’ and arming them with the cybersecurity management expertise necessary to fortify their cybersecurity infrastructure and implement rigorous incident prevention and management procedures.
