In our increasingly connected world, cybersecurity and privacy (CSP) have become center stage issues. The European Union and the United States are the two regions at the forefront of cyber challenges. This chapter presents the key elements of the CSP landscapes in the European Union and the United States. It highlights each region’s research and innovation (R&I) priorities, which provide an early look at the future of these areas. To understand how the European Union and the United States view CSP, the chapter analyzes the policies they have adopted to deal with challenges. It compares and contrasts key laws and regulations on both sides of the Atlantic in areas such as standards and certification; data protection and privacy; and public-private information sharing. The chapter concludes with a series of recommendations that aim to foster cooperation between the European Union and the United States to advance common CSP priorities.
