The EU cybersecurity certification framework
Within the next year, the EU will establish a cybersecurity certificate system for ICT products and services that will likely affect you and your company. The proposal is one of “a number of actions to increase resilience and enhance cybersecurity preparedness,” according to the European Commission. This common framework for EU-wide valid cybersecurity certificates will mitigate substantial risks within the single market.
Sounds like a big deal, right? That’s because it is. At Soteria, we’re ready to move everyone into a safer cyber world.
ENISA’s role in the new framework
ENISA (European Union Agency for Network and Information Security) is a EU agency that was founded in 2004 in response to a growing need for cyber security. The agency will have a central role in implementing this new initiative. For almost 15 years, ENISA has vigilantly educated, protected and served industries within the public and private sectors on everything having to do with cyber safety.
