Join the EURACTIV – GIGAEurope Digital Debate Series

Trust in the Digital Decade

Making sure technology serves EU citizens

Monday, 21 June 2021 | 11:00 – 12:30 CET

The EU has an ambitious recovery plan that will be green and digitally-led. EU citizens are already seeing the advantages of next generation e-health and e-mobility. These are enabled by gigabit networks. Gigabit network providers have an important trust role to play by providing Europeans secure and reliable access to the digital world through super-fast connectivity.

For connectivity providers, trust is defined as a secure connection, which is linked to cybersecurity; a private connection, which builds confidence about the transparent and trustworthy use of our data; and a resilient, future-proof and high-quality connection, which ensures good Gigabit speeds, including in rural areas.

Join this virtual conference to discuss the role of trust in empowering Europeans to access and benefit from the fast-changing digital world.
