Cybersecurity is an integral part of Europeans’ security. The EU’s democracy, economy and society depend more than ever on secure and reliable digital tools and connectivity. The needs for cybersecurity knowledge and competences exceeds the supply. The EU has to invest in building competences and talents in cybersecurity at all levels, from the non-expert to the highly skilled professional.
For EU cybersecurity professionals to be efficient at tackling objectives, as well as to work in a constantly changing threat environment, there is a need of a continuous process of collecting, organising, summarising, analysing, communicating, and maintaining cybersecurity information and knowledge.
Within the framework contract “Supporting activities on cybersecurity strategies, indexes and frameworks” eGA experts aim to provide support for ENISA’s (European Union Agency for Cybersecurity) work throughout the years 2021 – 2024 on
- assisting Member States to develop National Cybersecurity Strategies,
- mapping the impact of cybersecurity by means of quantitative and qualitative indexes, and
- developing cybersecurity taxonomies and (quantitative and qualitative) assessments of cybersecurity.
