What is the EU CyberNet online platform CynAct?

The EU CyberNet network connects the cybersecurity experts, the competent organisations and the EU’s ongoing and future efforts in cyber capacity building. We aim to improve coordination between all parties and thus achieve a better overview of the EU-wide expertise. This also means better use of the valuable human resources and know-how that forms a critical building block of the Union’s daily cybersecurity.

The core of our network is the online platform CynAct, through which experts in our community can join in for various cybersecurity missions, meetings, conferences and exercises.

Our platform was launched in March 2021. In the beginning, you will be able to use limited functions, but in the coming months we are working on developing the platform and creating more features for your benefit.

Participation in EU CyberNet enables experts to establish new professional relationships across the EU and beyond, bring alternation and enrichment to their everyday professional lives. It provides an opportunity to be part of wider capacity building efforts, to travel abroad and to contribute to unique training assignments or advising missions, with personal learning benefits.

Cybersecurity experts are the core of EU CyberNet and instrumental to the objective of building and promoting the model of an open, free, secure and stable cyberspace, based on the vision and values of the EU. Our network includes both the Expert Pool and the Stakeholder Community, including national cyber authorities, cybersecurity organisations, expert groups, think tanks and academic institutions from the EU Member States.
