ENISA Workshop: Protection of Electronic Communications Infrastructure and Information Sharing

Published on April 27, 2015

ENISA is organising a workshop on the Protection of Electronic Communications Infrastructure and Information Sharing on June 16th, 2015 in Bucharest Romania. 

The workshop is aimed at stakeholders from various sectors:

  • Electronic communication providers, who use these tools to declare their assets and exchange information. Electronic communication providers will be able to understand the requirements, explain the usage of such tools and express their needs for future developments
  • Civil work companies, who aim to limit the risks of disruptions when digging
  • Member States and policy makers, who aim to secure network infrastructure against various incidents
  • Users and developers of such tools, who will have the opportunity to exchange views on good practices across Europe and prioritize their developments.

The workshop will host presentations by the developers and managers of these tools. Two parallel panels will allow the audience to ask questions and exchange views on the initiatives. National Regulatory Agencies of electronic communications, and representatives from Member States are also expected to participate in the workshop.

Background information:

Information sharing is very important to prevent future incidents that can impact network and information security.

Internet outages caused by the disruption of underground assets (such as cables, fibre optics, ducts) can be prevented by declaring these assets and future civil works in special tools. ENISA has analysed the solutions deployed in several EU Member States in its report on the “Protection of Underground Electronic Communications Infrastructure”. Moreover, specific tools such as DIO allow operators to inform about disruptions among themselves and share information in a standardised manner.

For further information on the event please contact Dr. Cédric Lévy-Bencheton, Tel. +30 2814 409 630 and to register here.

Venue location to be announced soon.
