Ad-Hoc Working Group on Foresight On Emerging And Future Cybersecurity Challenges

The application period for the selection of members for ENISA's Ad-Hoc Working group on "Foresight On Emerging And Future Cybersecurity Challenges" is now closed.

The ENISA strategy sets the goal for Strategic objective 6 "Foresight On Emerging And Future Cybersecurity Challenges"  and aims to start a new chapter for ENISA that will enable the Agency to:

  • understand emerging trends and patterns
  • assess emerging challenges and risks
  • collaborate with stakeholders, decision- and policy-makers on appropriate mitigation strategies
  • improve the EU resilience to cybersecurity threats and find solutions to address emerging challenges.

Numerous new technologies, still in their infancy or close to mainstream adoption, would benefit from the use of foresight methods. Through a structured process enabling dialogue among stakeholders, decision- and policy-makers would be able to define early mitigation strategies that improve the EU resilience to cybersecurity threats and find solutions to address emerging challenges.

In order to fulfil this strategic objective in the ENISA’s WP2021 there is a dedicated Output 8.1 Foresight and the present call for applications for the selection of members of an ENISA ad hoc working group aims at fulfilling this goal.

The membership to this group is foreseen to pursue diverse, broad, interdisciplinary representation across stakeholders’ communities in order to cover future technological and societal challenges that could impact the Union’s infrastructure and services, and our ability to keep our society and citizens digitally secure.

The interdisciplinary ENISA ad hoc working group, among others, could indicatively include interdisciplinary experts, professionals and authors in foresight, future scenarios development. future studies,  horizon scanning, innovation and emerging trends,  long term strategy, long-range planning, etc. Please find more information about the expertise required and the scope of the Ad Hoc Working Group in the Terms of Reference.
