As part of the Call, our user organisations, or demand drivers, leveraged CSA-organised design-thinking workshops to bring their different teams together to identify and articulate their longer-term cybersecurity challenges.

These Challenge Statements are the starting point of an iterative process between the cybersecurity companies and users through which they will jointly work on innovative solutions.
