DIGITALEUROPE joins ENISA’s Stakeholder Cybersecurity Certification Group

DIGITALEUROPE has been appointed to the Stakeholder Cybersecurity Certification Group (SCCG) of ENISA, the European Union Agency for Cybersecurity, for a mandate of three years. The SCCG will provide ENISA and the European Commission with strategic guidance on cybersecurity certification.

“I am pleased to represent DIGITALEUROPE in ENISA’s highly anticipated Stakeholder Cybersecurity Certification Group. This responsibility comes at a critical time, as our increasing reliance on the digital environment calls for heightened concern in cybersecurity matters. Over the next three years, our work will ensure a stronger, safer Digital Single Market for our citizens and businesses.”

Cecilia Bonefeld-Dahl, Director-General, DIGITALEUROPE

We are pleased to announce that DIGITALEUROPE has been appointed to the Stakeholder Cybersecurity Certification Group (SCCG) of ENISA, the European Union Agency for Cybersecurity.

DIGITALEUROPE will be represented by Director-General Cecilia Bonefeld-Dahl, and the term will last for three years.

This appointment comes at a critical time, as the shift of many activities online and the increasing digitization of society call for improved trust and security in products and services that are crucial for the Digital Single Market.

Through our collaboration in the SCCG, we will strive for a robust and comprehensive framework for EU-wide cybersecurity certificates to ensure a safer digital environment. This will be crucial to ensure consistent, harmonized rules across the EU and avoid fragmentation amongst the Member States.

The SCCG was mandated under the Cybersecurity Act as the main entity providing strategic guidance for the European Commission and ENISA on cybersecurity certification, with the objective of facilitating and providing contributions among stakeholders.

The group will have 50 representatives from industry, associations, NGOs, academia, standardization bodies and consumer organizations, and will have four main tasks:

  • Advising ENISA on general and strategic matters concerning its tasks in cybersecurity certification market and standardization;
  • Assisting the Commission in preparing the Union rolling work programme to identify strategic priorities for future European Cybersecurity Certification Schemes;
  • Advising the Commission and ENISA on any immediate, additional certification schemes that do not get mentioned in the Union rolling work programme.
