Cybersecurity has never been more important
The pandemic has made it harder for European cybersecurity companies to stay relevant in their market and has increased the need to expand their commercial exposure far beyond their traditional home markets. This landscape can be challenging for companies who do not have enough means to achieve their full potential under these circumstances. However, a good starting point is recognizing that they are not alone in the struggle for a more robust presence in Europe and raise awareness of their strategic value.
Working together to advance Cybersecurity in Europe: Cybersecurity Made In Europe LABEL To European cybersecurity companies position themselves on the market and be recognized as European, the European Cyber Security Organisation (ECSO) has initiated the Cybersecurity Made in Europe Label. This initiative involves introducing an industry-driven quality label, designed to promote European cybersecurity companies and increase their visibility on the European and on the global market. The Label will contribute strongly toward a stronger vision of a cyber-secure digital Europe.

The registration of the Label has a cost of 600€ and covers the administrative cost and the rights to be passed to ECSO. The pricing model is in line with current pricing. In general, the model attempts to ensure companies to become part of the catalog of qualitative European CyberSecurity services and technology providers, preventing competition and collusion among the local partners at national level to misstate prices.
The Label is valid for 12 months, and the re-issuance takes place automatically once the payment is received (the Labels that have been issued during the launch period, ending on 1 March 2021, are exceptionally valid for 18 months).
