ENISA’s efforts focus on supporting Member States in the area of National Cyber Security Strategies, CIIP, capacity building and the security of emerging technologies. Furthermore an insight was offered on the NIS Directive and how this is translated for industry - for Digital Services Providers (DSPs) and Essential Service Operators (ESOs) – in the relevant sectors energy, banking, healthcare, and transport sector - on incident reporting.

In addition ENISA supports capacity building in the EU, through the cyber exercises and trainings, such as the recently implemented Cyber Europe 2016.

In his presentation Paulo Empadinhas stressed “within this evolving environment collaboration is everything. Failure to detect threats is often more costly than false alarms, while cyber-attacks have become a norm. Member States with the support from ENISA should cooperate to protect critical information infrastructures through sharing of information, developing and deploying good practices and cooperate with National Regulatory Authorities to achieve EU wide harmonisation”.
