Political agreement on the Cybersecurity Act strengthens ENISA’s competences

Closing the year 2018, on December 10, the European Parliament, the Council and the European Commission reached a political agreement under the Cybersecurity Act, reinforcing the mandate and competences of ENISA, the European Union Agency for Network and Information and Security.

The political agreement on the Cybersecurity Act will also create a framework for European Cybersecurity Certificates for products, processes and services that will be valid throughout the EU.

The new regulation still needs to be formally adopted by the European Parliament and the Council of the EU before being published in the EU Official Journal. Once it’s published, it will officially enter into force immediately.

The Cybersecurity Act was proposed as part of the Cybersecurity package, proposed by the Commission and adopted on 13 September 2017 as one of the main priorities of the Digital Single Market strategy.
