Securing EU Institutions, Bodies and Agencies

Today, the European Union Agency for Cybersecurity (ENISA) welcomes the recommendations of the European Court of Auditors on cybersecurity of EUIBAs.

Published on March 30, 2022

The observations and recommendations of the European Court of Auditors’ special report on the cybersecurity of EU institutions, bodies and agencies come at a timely moment, as cyber threats are increasing and discussions about cyber preparedness are taking place across numerous EU communities.

The report highlights the key roles that ENISA and CERT-EU can play in increasing the level of cyber preparedness of EUIBAs as a whole and underscores the need for adequate resources to do so. Furthermore, the findings and recommendations of the report underline the importance of common legal cybersecurity frameworks for all EUIBAs.

The observations arrive just as the European Commission has proposed a regulation on measures for a high common level of cybersecurity at the EU institutions, bodies and agencies. The regulation aims to establish common cybersecurity measures to boost the resilience and response capacities against cyber threats and incidents.

Background

In 2021, the EU Agency for Cybersecurity and CERT-EU signed an agreement on a structured cooperation to work together on capacity building, operational cooperation and knowledge and information sharing. The provision for a structured cooperation was included in the Cybersecurity Act of 2019. ENISA and CERT-EU meet regularly to agree on joint activities to implement the Annual Cooperation Plans.
