european_parliamentThe proposal presented in the European Parliament for a regulation of the Council on ENISA, the ‘EU Cybersecurity Agency’, repealing Regulation (EU) 526/2013, and on Information and Communication Technology cybersecurity certification (‘Cybersecurity Act’) has been passed.

The resolution calls for more resources to be allocated to ENISA given the increasing cybersecurity threats and challenges the Union is facing, while it also supporting the need for a standardised EU-wide certification, providing common cybersecurity requirements and evaluation criteria across national markets and sectors.

The full document can be found on the European Parliament’s website. The CEPIS Working Group on Legal and Security Issues (LSI SIN) presented their paper on ‘Best practices for a journey towards secure cyberspace’ earlier this year, which may be found on CEPIS’ website.
