The European Union Agency for Cybersecurity delivered Infodays for the National Cybersecurity Authority (NCA) of the Hellenic Ministry of Digital Governance to increase the country’s cybersecurity capacity.

Published on July 01, 2020

The European Union Agency for Cybersecurity, ENISA, led an Infodays seminar on June 24, 25, 30 and July 1 for the National Cybersecurity Authority (NCA) of the Hellenic Ministry of Digital Governance to support the ministry in developing its own train-the-trainer programme. The event was held virtually.

Over the span of two weeks, ENISA experts spotlighted the key developments in the EU cybersecurity ecosystem, including emerging technologies such as Artificial Intelligence and 5G, for new employees of the ministry. The team also trained NCA personnel on various cybersecurity topics, with a special focus on EU cybersecurity policy. Most importantly, ENISA identified and shared with attendees the main tools and materials needed to establish a basic cybersecurity train-the-trainer programme for Greece’s pubic administration sector.

ENISA Executive Director Juhan Lepassaar opened the seminar on day one, which focused on operational crisis management and the role of Computer Security Incident Response Teams (CSIRTs) across Europe. Day two focused on EU cybersecurity certification framework, and cyber-threat intelligence and risk management. On day three, experts took a look at the NIS Directive, the first piece of EU-wide cybersecurity legislation, and discussed security supervision under the European Electronics Communications Code (EECC). The final day, today, concluded with a deep dive into emerging technologies, such as AI, 5G, IoT and cloud computing.

ENISA has played a significant role in supporting the Hellenic Ministry of Digital Governance since opening its doors in Athens in 2004. The Agency and ministry are currently working together to expand this collaboration to National Cyber Security Strategies and trainings for incident handling and response.
