Tue European Union Agency for Network and Information Security ENISA releases its Annual Activity Report for 2014. The report provides an insight into ENISA’s operations and key programmes in the service of the EU’s cyber security. Throughout this past year, the Agency has built on its renewed regulatory framework actively supporting:
- EU policy building and implementation of EU legislation: ENISA’s work in the context of Article 13a with National Telecom Regulators and European Electronic Communications Service Providers has provided deep insights on root causes of major incidents and best practices. All Member States use ENISA’s technical guidelines in their annual reporting. On standardisation ENISA contributes at the CEN CENELEC ETSI Cyber Security Coordination Group (CSCG) for the development of the CSCG white paper. On Network and Information Security (NIS) the Agency has become a point of reference for European Trust Service Providers (TSPs) on eIDAS security requirements, and the data protection legislation with the reference document on privacy by design. The Agency also supports the EU’s cloud computing strategy and partnership through its work on governmental clouds, and developing best practice in the public and private sector and in particular for SMEs.
- Capacity building of EU Member States within the public and private sector, and raising the level of awareness among EU citizens. The ECSM (European Cyber Security Month) is a known example which takes place across 30 countries; with more than 184 activities and over 2000 twitter followers last year.
