New report published on "Economics of Security"

The Agency has published a report identifying the economic drivers and barriers of legal, policy, technical and research character to security and resilience.

Published on December 21, 2011

Currently there are discussions at the international level on the issue of Economics of Security, which has resulted in several studies and analyses. ENISA has collected and analysed the existing knowledge available in order to avoid duplication of work and create a solid view of the complex issue of “Economics of Security”.

For this purpose, experts in this area have been contacted and their views on open issues in the area of Economics of Security have been assessed.

Once the analysis exercise was completed, ENISA identified key issues that need to be addressed in the short term. As part of this work, ENISA identified particular stakeholders affected by this challenging environment, such as the consumers, industry and state. Subsequently identified and analysed the ways they are affected and possible ways to address their concerns.

In order to do this effectively, we established a multidisciplinary working group, comprising of economists, technical experts, economists and representatives of industry.

The final report can be found here.
