20 speakers participating in the various CTI sessions and a wide audience of 160 participants made this a successful event. Approximately 9 vendors of CTI products have participated in the CTI showroom, networking with the event participants.

During the presentations and interactions with participants, it was stressed that CTI is about information collection, contextualisation, analysis and creation of bodies of knowledge. Processes guiding these activities need to undergo a continuous maturity process.

In the EU, historically, some organisation units have started developing these capabilities due to their emerging role and needs. ENISA, CERT EU, DG CONNECT, EEAS, JRC, EDA are such cases, all present in the panel CTI in European Commission services, opened by the EU Agency for Cybersecurity Executive Director, Juhan Lepassaar.

Their engagement spans most of the CTI areas: operational/tactical (CERT EU), tactical/strategic (ENISA), strategic/policy (Commission) geopolitical (EEAS), defence (Commission, EDA), scientific/hybrid threats capability (JRC). In the meantime, these activities became mainstream in the daily businesses of these organisations.

The objective of the conference was to learn from available knowledge and analysis skills, facilitate exchange of best practices, find synergies with the aim to make approaches coherent. We can together find paths to mutually achieve a higher level of CTI maturity. Initial steps with CERT EU and JRC on the matter have been already agreed, a short time ago.

This is imperative in order to facilitate decision-making and risk management activities at all levels: technical, operational, scientific, policy and diplomacy.

This is a vital contribution increasing European autonomy in the critical area of CTI and at the same time towards strategic objective of a unified European approach in cybersecurity.

The Network Information Security conference organised by ENISA and FORTH Hellas Institute, will take place again on the last quarter of the year. Information on this event will be become available soon.
