The Chamber would like to invite you on 2 February 15:00 CET to attend our online discussion on the European Commission’s proposal for the Cyber Resilience Act, where we will be delighted to hear from MEP Henna Virkkunen, ITRE Shadow Rapporteur for the proposal.

With more than €7.6 trillion worth of damages and 10 terabytes worth of data stolen in cyberattacks expected in the upcoming year alone, and online services, public administration and the general public being the most vulnerable in the face of cybercrime, the European Commission's proposal for a 'Regulation on cybersecurity requirements for products with digital elements' - the Cyber Resilience Act (CRA) - comes at a time when the integrity and safety of European businesses, public services and citizens has never been in a more urgent need to be secured in a uniform way across the Union. The proposal sets forward a comprehensive package of manufacturing, screening and reporting requirements for connected devices and services sold on the Internal Market, with deep ramifications for all EU and third-country manufacturers.

To hear more details on the CRA and the perspective of the European Parliament on the file, we will be hearing from MEP Henna Virkkunen (EPP, FI), ITRE Shadow Rapporteur for the CRA. Ms. Virkkunen's presentation will be followed by a Q&A session moderated by Elizabeth Crossick, Chair of the BritCham Digital Committee, where participants will have the opportunity to pose their questions to the speaker.

We look forward to welcoming you to such an exciting and topical event!
