The results of CANVAS focus on three target groups that are positioned in a critical position for promoting a secure and innovative ecosystem through fostering the creation of secure technologies in line with European values. For each of these groups a Deliverable will be produced:

  • Policy makers: This involves politicians and government representatives both on the EU level as well as on the national and regional level who deal with issues related to cybersecurity. For this target group, briefing packages will be produced, that summarize the main findings of CANVAS. The packages include presentations, short summary texts, case studies and commented literature lists. The packages will be produced in three European languages: English, French and German.   Read more »
  • Industry experts/teachers: This involves employees of companies with a professional relation to cybersecurity. The main target group experts/teachers that deal with training and continuing education, but also technical universities or other providers of training courses in ICT. For this target group, a reference curriculum will be generated that outlines how ethical and legal issues related to cybersecurity can be implemented in the training of cybersecurity experts.   Read more »
  • Students in ICT or related fields: To disseminate the findings of CANVAS to the next generation of ICT experts, we create a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) that conveys the results in a didactical form. The primary target group will be students in ICT or related fields of the consortium and further CANVAS alliance partners, but the course will be open for any interested participant.   Read more »

Information related to reference domains

CANVAS will also collect existing information on cybersecurity and ethics and make it available along the three reference domains:

  • Health sphere: Many ICT applications in the health sphere work with sensitive personal da-ta. Some particular services may have immediate and even fatal consequences for individuals (e.g., life-sustaining systems in intensive care units). Here, cybersecurity particularly relates to values like autonomy (also related to informed consent for data use) and equality.
  • Business sphere: ICT applications in this sphere allow for an ever-increasing number of business opportunities that are offered on the market. Cybersecurity questions are expected to be in particular relation to values like fairness and accountability/responsibility.
  • Police and national security sphere: In this sphere, stakeholders (police, national security agencies) have privileged access to ICT services related to law-enforcement or defence operations. Here, cybersecurity is expected to particularly relate to values like freedom and privacy.
