Political agreement reached on Cybersecurity Act

The European Parliament, the Council and the Commission have reached a political agreement on the Cybersecurity Act, which reinforces the mandate of the EU Agency for Cybersecurity (ENISA) to better support Member States with tackling cybersecurity threats and attacks. This includes giving a permanent mandate for the EU Cybersecurity Agency to replace its limited mandate that would have expired in 2020, and a stronger basis for ENISA in the new cybersecurity certification framework to assist Member States in effectively responding to cyber-attacks with a greater role in cooperation and coordination at Union level.
