ENISA publishes its Annual Report for 2014

Flagship programmes and achievements in 2014 include:

  • The threat landscape report, which consolidates and analyses the top cyber threats and their evolution, referencing over 400 sources on threats, to help navigate through the cyber landscape. The report has received around 25000 downloads and is widely referenced. In parallel, two thematic landscapes have been developed by the Agency on Internet Infrastructures and Smart Home Environments.
  • The Cyber Exercises, define and test operational procedures (EU-SOPs) for all cybersecurity authorities in the EU, for handling cyber events. A new incarnation of „Cyber Europe 2014“ took place in 2014, where 1556 players representing 483 public and private sector organisations from 29 EU and EFTA Member States, tested collaboration during large scale cyber incidents.
  • CERTs – the  EU’s Computer Emergency Response Teams – which assist public and private sector organizations, to provide a response to incidents and threats across an EU wide network through the exchange of experience and expertise while developing ‘baseline capabilities’. ENISA has developed, together with the CERT community, the training program for advanced skills for IT Security experts which is publically available on the ENISA website.

ENISA’s Executive Director Udo Helmbrecht stated: “Emerging trends in cyber security in this past year marked the different aspects to cyber security and cyber-attacks. We face a new type of asymmetric warfare with a new paradigm and no taxonomy. Furthermore, the development of digital solutions, result to a more data driven approach, increasing vulnerability to cyberattacks. Applications of new technologies also highlight unchartered territories and whether society can tolerate the consequences resulting from their use. ENISA will continue to deliver its programme to reinforce and promote trust and security in digital services in the EU”.

In 2014 ENISA produced 37 reports in a variety of areas ranging from national level subjects such as the protection of critical infrastructure, to subjects affecting the individual citizen level such as privacy and data protection. ENISA’s 2014 reports are available online here.
