The workshop

This 4th ENISA workshop on CERTs in Europe once again brought together the experts from established CERTs with newcomers, project managers and policy makers from the EU Member States involved with CERT initiatives.

The workshop had three goals:

  • Inform the Member States representatives about the plans and projects of the European Commission, ENISA and others in the field of resilience of public communication networks.
  • Support these programs by discussing them with the representatives from the Member States and retrieve valuable feedback.
  • Prepare a good practice guide on this topic for ENISA’s Work Program 2009.

Selected speakers from ENISA, the European Commission, Member States, US, Japan representatives and others facilitated the discussions.
