Published on October 04, 2022
The study visit of the delegation to ENISA is a key part of the EU’s Cybersecurity East Project. Launched in 2019, the project intends to support Eastern partnership countries in developing their cyber capacities and legislative framework and promoting the compatibility and approximation of legal frameworks, best practices and cooperation.
The representatives presented to ENISA the assessment of their current cyber threat landscape and gave an account of some of the specific cybersecurity and security challenges they faced. EaP countries were particularly interested in discussing the implementation experiences in the EU linked to the Network and Information Security, NIS and NIS2 Directives, as well as certification and standardisation initiatives in the EU. ENISA explained its role in relation to these activities and scope of actions within the frame of the Cybersecurity Act. The capacity and awareness-building initiatives and activities were of particular interest. Further points of discussion covered approaches to cybercrime and cybersecurity and the general role and structures of ENISA within the EU’s cybersecurity set-up.
The project is part of the Eastern Partnership (EaP), a joint policy initiative designed to promote EU values, policies, best practices and interest in these neighbouring countries and ultimately strengthen the cooperation between the European Union (EU), the EU Member States and the Eastern countries involved.
