Article 13a Working Group meeting- regarding reporting of cyber security incidents

ENISA just concluded the 8th Article 13a Working group meeting with the national regulatory authorities, regarding the implementation of EU-wide security legislation for electronic communication providers.

Published on October 19, 2012

The meeting was hosted by the German regulator Bundesnetzagentur, and held in Mainz, Germany. Present at the two-day meeting were regulators from nearly all EU Member States (30 experts), a representative of the European Commission, and technical experts from ENISA.

The main agenda items were:

  • An update on the developments of the European Cyber Security Strategy
  • The first Annual Cyber Security Incidents report, issued recently
  • Four large outages that occurred recently in the EU member states, and possible security measures to prevent outages (national roaming, resiliency of IT equipment, dependencies on power supply, et cetera)
  • Live demonstrations of four tools used for reporting incidents to authorities (Sweden, Austria, US FCC, ENISA).


The next meeting of the Article 13a WG is scheduled for February 2013. The next round of incident reporting will take place in the first two months of 2013.
