The European Commission has opened a call for evidence to evaluate the European Union Agency for Cybersecurity (ENISA). This initiative is part of Regulation (EU) 2019/881, which obliges the Commission to assess ENISA’s performance in fulfilling its mandate, objectives, and tasks. But that’s not all – they also want to see if there’s a need to change its mandate.
The call for evidence falls under the category of “Evaluation”. This means they’re seeking your feedback on ENISA’s impact, effectiveness, and efficiency, especially in terms of the European Cybersecurity Certification Framework. This is a fantastic opportunity for stakeholders to have their say and influence future developments in this area.
The feedback period started on the 14th of July 2023 and will run until the 16th of September 2023, midnight Brussels time. The Commission is not just looking for feedback from industry professionals; they want to hear from all of us. So, whether you’re a cybersecurity expert or just someone interested in digital economy and society, make sure to give your feedback.
After feedback is received and reviewed, the Commission plans to adopt the initiative in the second quarter of 2024. You can follow the development of this initiative or receive notifications about new initiatives by subscribing to their email list.
