Annual Incident Reports 2015

For the fifth year, ENISA publishes the annual report about significant outage incidents in the European electronic communications sector, which are reported to ENISA and the European Commission (EC) under Article 13a of the Framework Directive (2009/140/EC), by the National Regulatory Authorities (NRAs) of the different EU Member States. This report covers the incidents that occurred in 2015 and it gives an aggregated analysis of the incident reports about severe outages across the EU.


The aim of the incident reporting scheme is to provide transparency to society and to learn from past incidents in the electronic communications sector in order to systematically improve the security in the networks and services. This report provides an overview on an aggregated level of what services and network assets are impacted and the root causes of the incidents. Conclusions on the main patterns of incidents are drawn, contributing to discussions at policy level on strategic measures to improve the security in the electronic communications sector.
