By 27 June 2019No Comments

"A European security certification framework for digital services and devices, with schemes based on risk potential, and stronger powers for the European Cyber Security Agency (Enisa) to support Member States in responding to threats and attacks cybernetic. These are the two innovations introduced by the European Cybersecurity Act, the new European regulation in favor of information security, in force from today throughout the Union.


The commitment of the EU executive is to present "a strong European model for IT security, in line with EU democratic values, to safeguard the interests of European citizens and businesses", said EU Commissioner for Digital, Mariya Gabriel. The EU offensive on cybersecurity does not stop with the new regulation on cybersecurity certification. In March, the Commission recommended a number of measures to Member States to ensure the security of 5G networks across the EU and a response is expected by December. Last May, the European Council also approved a sanctions regime that the EU can impose to deter cyber threats and respond to attacks.


According to the latest available EU data, the European cybersecurity market is worth 130 billion euros and records an annual growth of 17%. "
