Published on November 07, 2018

On 6 November 2018, following a meeting at working level, the four Principals of the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between the European Union Agency for Network and Information Security (ENISA), the European Defence Agency (EDA), Europol and the Computer Emergency Response Team for the EU Institutions, Agencies and Bodies (CERT-EU), met at CERT-EU's premises.

The purpose of the meeting was to update each other on relevant developments and assess the progress made under the MoU, which provides a cooperation framework aiming at leveraging synergies between the four organisations to achieve a safe and open cyberspace.

The four partners also agreed on a roadmap prepared by the MoU working group with concrete activities and deliverables throughout 2019.

ENISA's Executive Director, Udo Helmbrecht said: "I welcome the decisions made here today. We all agreed on a concrete roadmap for the upcoming months, which focuses on joint activities. Also, we foresee an increased cooperation with our MoU partners in our next cyber exercise Cyber Europe 2020, as well as in other related technical exercises, which ENISA will organise. We are determined to take this cooperation to the next level.”

The initial focus will be on working closer in the areas of training and cyber exercises, building the cooperation capacity and the improved exchange of information on respective projects and events with a view to complementing the work of the four partners and avoiding the duplication of efforts.

The Principals agreed that this was a major milestone in entering a new era of working together and an important first step in putting the cooperation framework into practice.
