Cybersecurity - Intelligent Safety for the Digital Age

Data theft, blackmail, system failures - the dangers are constantly increasing and can threaten the existence of small and medium-sized companies. How can SMEs and public authorities best protect themselves against cyber-attacks and IT emergencies?


Three European Digital Innovation Hubs (EDIHs), namely Pro Digital EDIH, Robocoast EDIH, and EDIH LT, are collaboratively hosting a webinar focused on ‘Intelligent Security for the Digital Age’ along with several cybersecurity-related workshops. The workshops are organized independently by the respective EDIHs. The first workshop, conducted in German, is hosted by Pro Digital EDIH. The second workshop, conducted in English, is hosted by Robocoast EDIH. This collaborative effort aims to provide comprehensive insights into the realm of cybersecurity

On 5th June, our webinar from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. and subsequent country-specific workshops from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. will provide you with in-depth insights and practical solutions. 
The interactive format allows you to exchange ideas with our speakers and Partners of the Baltic Region. In compact presentations, workshops and a panel discussion, participants will learn how to strengthen their company's IT security at all levels - from emergency prevention to threats and solutions through AI systems. 
The European Digital Innovation Hubs are committed to the digitalization of SMEs and public institutions in Europe. Through workshops, demonstrators and targeted funding, we support the implementation of innovative, digital technologies.

Added value for participants:

  • Recognizing potential risks and vulnerabilities
  • Familiarization with best practices for prevention
  • Development of a holistic security concept
  • Networking with experts for potential follow-up projects
