On 16 October, in Brussels, BEREC will hold its 7th Stakeholder Forum. The stakeholders from the telecoms and digital communications industries will have the opportunity to interact with BEREC on cybersecurity in the context of 5G networks, to express their thoughts on the draft BEREC Work Programme 2020 and have futurist insight on the technology development.

The panel discussion on the cybersecurity challenges in electronic communications and in particular 5G networks will be looking into active discussion to identify the efficient safety/security issues in today’s fast moving environment. After the opening remarks by the European Commission, Body of the European Regulators for Electronic Communications (BEREC), Radio Spectrum Policy Group (RSPG) and European Union Agency for Cybersecurity (ENISA) representatives, multiple distinguished speakers will share their ideas on the topic.

The stakeholders input to the BEREC annual Work programme is highly appreciated, therefore the incoming BEREC Chair for 2020 - Dan Sjöblom, will introduce the participants of the event to the planned main duties for the EU telecoms regulators in 2020. The BEREC Chair 2019 Jeremy Godfrey together with elected BEREC Chair 2021 (to be elected at the 40th BEREC plenary meeting on 3rd October 2019) will join Mr Sjöblom on the stage to endorse the stakeholders’ engagement in discussing BEREC’s past, present and the future. More information on the specific panels available in the draft Agenda.

The forum will close with a networking reception where everyone will be able to continue the discussions and share their thoughts, ideas and experiences with the BEREC team and other stakeholders. The BEREC Stakeholder Forum is open to the public and will be live-streamed on the BEREC website.
