REWIRE at SPARTA Partnership Program for Baltic Sea Stakeholders
On November 25, 2021, the Lithuanian Cybercrime Center of Excellence for Training, Research and Education (L3CE) held the SPARTA Partnership Program for Baltic Sea Region Stakeholders workshop. The objective of the event was to discuss the situation of the Baltic Sea region, and to compare it with other EU regions to find solutions.
In this context, Mr. Andrius Bambalas, REWIRE Project Coordinator from Mykolas Romeris University, Lithuania, had the chance to present the REWIRE project. Mr. Bambalas talked about how the world has been continuously going through a digitalisation process, which has progressed more rapidly due to COVID-19. Within that digitalisation process, cybersecurity is, with no doubt, an indispensable aspect. Therefore, the cybersecurity skills situation in the European Union was presented, pointing out how member states work on their own frameworks, but there is no consistency across the EU. As a consequence, cybersecurity skills are not transferable across the countries, which makes it difficult to establish a single-market or development of specialisation.
Mr. Bambalas also highlighted the aim of the REWIRE project, that is to set up a sustainable sectoral alliance to develop specific innovative instruments to address skills shortages and gaps; to match skills demand and supply; and to define a new common Cybersecurity Skills Framework at the European level.
