It was with great pride that we received thenews about S21sec, a company majority owned by Sonae IM and a leader incybersecurity, becoming an active participant in the development of Europe’sfuture information safety guidelines, as a founding member of the EuropeanCyber Security Organisation - ECSO.

ECSO will be working with the EuropeanCommission through the recently launched public-private partnership incybersecurity in order to improve cybersecurity policies in the Europeanterritory and strengthen cooperation across borders, between all players andsectors. The purpose is to prevent cybersecurity risks for citizens, companiesand state administrations alike, which will be secured by a €450 millioninvestment under the Horizon 2020 programme.
