The European Union Agency for Cybersecurity — ENISA — welcomes the European Commission proposal to launch the new Joint Cyber Unit (JCU) which will act as a platform to ensure an EU coordinated response to large-scale cyber incidents and crises.
The concept of the JCU, suggested two years ago by European Commission President von der Leyen, is an important step towards completing the European cybersecurity crisis management framework, ENISA stated.
“The EU Agency for Cybersecurity is committed to support the Union and its Member States in the response to cyberattacks. The Joint Cyber Unit will build stronger relationships within the cybersecurity ecosystem and shape an effective framework for crisis management. Our future local office in Brussels will operate closely with the Unit to coordinate response, create situational awareness and ensure preparedness in times of crisis", said Juhan Lepassaar, EU Agency for Cybersecurity Executive Director.
