Security through innovation
Cybersecurity sector as a driving force
in the national economic development
THE KOSCIUSZKO INSTITUTE REPORT
Cybersecurity is not only
about cost. If built properly, it
may also generate revenue for
the country. A strong national
cybersecurity sector does not
only help protect the state,
but it can also be an important
export commodity and a driver
of economic growth.
PUBLIC-PRIVATE PARTNERSHIPS IN POLAND:
A POTENTIAL TO BE TAPPED
The national cybersecurity sector
cannot thrive without an active involvement
of the government in both the
civilian and the military domain. From a
meticulously designed and executed
national cybersecurity strategy through
adequate partnership mechanisms
to proper R&D programme, the government
should support the cybersecurity
industry throughout this chain.
EARLY BIRDS MAKE THE PROFITS
There are countries which went down that road and they are already reaping the benefits
of the rapidly growing global cybersecurity market.
IN POLAND, WE HAVE THE MEANS
Poland has the potential to join and profit from the exponential rise of this market. It
has a strong ICT sector, adept workforce, and a thriving academic community.
POLAND CAN BENEFIT FROM ITS MEMBERSHIP
IN THE SUPRANATIONAL ORGANISATIONS
POLAND MUST UNDERTAKE ACTION TO FULLY EMBRACE THE OPPORTUNITY
The key conclusions of the report lead us to
Developing public-private cooperation mechanisms
adapting the existing public-private cooperation mechanisms to include cybersecurity-oriented projects, e.g. the public-private partnership,
seizing the existing opportunities for cooperation that stem from the Polish membership in NATO and the EU,
creating new mechanisms, especially for dealing with emergency situations such as large-scale cyberattacks.
Developing military-industry cooperation mechanisms
developing methods of cooperation between the military and the private sector in times of war and peace
engaging skilled individuals for cyber defence purposes,
creating long-term partnerships between the Armed Forces and national ICT companies.
Devising a robust R&D programme
- providing grants,
- procuring R&D services from commercial partners ,
- providing tax incentives for companies conducting R&D.
boosting the domestic cybersecurity market by making the central administration and state-owned enterprises more open to cooperation with national companies,
changing the legal framework to increase the competitiveness of national ICT companies (including startups and SMEs) in public bids,
helping national companies access foreign markets by preparing and executing a long-term PR strategy to promote Poland as a cybersecurity centre of excellence.
