Ad-Hoc Working Group on Cyber Threat Landscapes

The application period for the selection of members for ENISA's Ad-Hoc Working group on "Cyber Threat Landscapes" is closed.

Published under Threat Landscape

The cyber threat landscape is constantly evolving. Both policy makers and practitioners need up to date and accurate information on the current threat landscape, supported by threat intelligence. To respond to this need, the EU Agency for Cybersecurity (ENISA) Threat Landscape has been published on an annual basis over the years. It is based on publicly available data and provides an independent view on observed threats, threat agents, threat trends and attack vectors.

ENISA’s Work Programme 2021 Output O.8.2 highlights the need for ENISA to revisit the topic of threat landscape(s). Following the revised form of the ENISA Threat Landscape Report 2020, ENISA wishes to continue and further improve this flagship report. In particular, ENISA seeks to provide targeted as well as general reports, recommendations, analyses and other actions on future cybersecurity scenarios and threat landscapes, supported via a clear and publicly available methodology and IT tools. By establishing a methodology to develop threat landscapes, the Agency aims to set a baseline for the transparent and systematic delivery of horizontal, thematic and sectorial cybersecurity threat landscapes.

Along these lines, ENISA plans to set up an ad hoc working group in order to interact with a broad range of stakeholders for the purpose of collecting input on a number of relevant aspects. The scope of this ad hoc working group is to advise ENISA in designing, updating and reviewing the methodology for creating cyber threat landscapes, including the annual ENISA Threat Landscape.
