On the 26th October Daniel Borg participated in the ‘Cyber Root Conference organised by MITA. The Conference among other things discussed the level of preparedness of businesses in terms of cyber security. During a panel discussion formed of representatives from the business associations in Malta, the results of a survey conducted among businesses in Malta and Gozo, were discussed. Daniel Borg compared the results of the survey to the outcome of a similar study conducted by ENISA on a EU wide basis. He highlighted that the outcome of both studies showed that the situation of SMEs in both Malta and Gozo is very similar to that of other EU countries.
