ENISA co-organized a workshop on transposition and implementation of Art. 13a of the new Telecom Package in the Member States of the European Union. Art 13a concerns the security and integrity of networks and services. It introduces, among other measures, an obligation to report security incidents with a significant impact on services. The workshop was co-organised in cooperation with the Swedish Post and Telecommunications Agency (PTS) on the 24th of September, in Stockholm.
The European Commission, competent national authorities from 15 Member States and ENISA were represented at the event.
The workshop is part of a series of activities that ENISA, together with the Member States and the European Commission, is performing in order to achieve the final goal of a coherent and harmonized implementation of Art. 13a in all Member States. The workshop follows the one that took place in Madrid in May; see earlier news item.
The specific objectives of the Stockholm meeting were:
• to share information about the state of the transposition and implementation process in each Member State.
• to agree the definition of measures that will make a harmonized implementation of Art. 13a possible (namely minimum security measure guidelines for National Regulatory Authorities, (NRA)s, and reporting schema to ENISA),
• to increase the level of trust between the all involved parties.
The final results matched the expectations both in terms of number of Member States represented, which was more than double than in Madrid, and in terms of achievement of the objectives. As a follow-up, a third workshop on the topic will soon be organized.
