On May 21st, Līga Raita Rozentāle, Senior Director of European Governmental Affairs at Microsoft and member of the Women4Cyber Council, gave a masterclass on multi-stakeholderism and cybersecurity in which she talked about the added value of public and private cooperation.
During her masterclass, she discussed the opportunities in the cybersecurity industry to strengthen the European cyberspace through cooperation between EU institutions, EU Member States, NATO, the private sector, academia, and civil society.
She explained that a high common level of cybersecurity across the EU can only be achieved by a strong legislation, harmonisation and coordination among Member States and public-private cooperation, which is essential for information sharing.
She also stressed that cybersecurity is not a national or European issue, but rather a borderless challenge. Therefore, multistakeholder diplomacy is essential to address international cybersecurity challenges.
