2nd informal meeting of CSIRT Network organised by ENISA

Fifty-six persons representing CSIRTs from twenty-six Member States, CERT-EU, the European Commission and ENISA, gathered on the 10th May 2016 for the second informal meeting of the CSIRTs Network

Published on May 11, 2016

The meeting was organised adjacent to ENISA’s annual workshop for national and governmental CSIRTs, in collaboration with the Dutch Presidency of the Council of the EU. CERT.LV kindly hosted the meeting at their premises, with ENISA moderating and facilitating the meeting.

In his opening statement, Dr Steve Purser, Head of ENISA Core Operations highlighted the importance of the meeting, as it marked the beginning of a key process with the implementation of the NIS Directive, the first EU legislation related to cyber security.

The group held discussions on various topics related to the governance and the activities of the CSIRTs Network. The upcoming NIS Directive creates a Network of CSIRTs “in order to contribute to the development of confidence and trust between the Member States and to promote swift and effective operational cooperation”. The discussions proved very fruitful, thanks to concrete proposals from the Dutch Presidency and the Polish delegation, and the active participation of attendees.

Next steps

The first formal meeting of the CSIRTs Network will be organised six months after the entry into force of the NIS Directive. In the meantime, participants will finalise the set-up of the group, with ENISA’s support. A further meeting is expected in late Q3 or early Q4.
