The importance of digital skills no longer needs to be emphasized these days. Unfortunately, especially in the area of cybersecurity, there is still a large gap between aspiration and reality.

The necessary basic cyber skills and the implementation of baseline security also in the SME sector are of crucial importance for Austria as a business location.
