DCMS Workshop: EU proposals for Cyber Security Certification

*This event is near full capacity, so please book soon to avoid disappointment*

The European Commission is working to reform ENISA, the “EU Cybersecurity Agency” and establish a framework to govern European cyber security certification schemes. The proposal, amongst other things, seeks to:

  • Provide ENISA with a strengthened and permanent mandate
  • Increase the trust and security of ICT products and services
  • Harmonise the existing certification landscape to reduce costs and administrative burdens for companies
  • Progress the Digital Single Market

These proposals include changes to the way European cyber security certification schemes are developed and implemented and proposes a framework which will ‘govern’ European cyber security certification schemes, in order to increase trust and security of ICT products and services and address the existing fragmentation in the certification landscape to reduce costs and administrative burdens for companies. It does not aim to introduce directly operational schemes but rather to create a system which will allow schemes to be established and recognised across the EU.

The Department for Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) is seeking stakeholder views on the Regulation’s proposals to ensure that this new legislation delivers the best outcomes for all those affected by the measures.

We are therefore holding this workshop with DCMS on Monday 22 January 2018 in order for members to gain a better understand of the proposals and share their views with DCMS.

For any further information please do contact the team.

The full proposal can be read here.
