“New” ENISA to give EU Fighting Chance Against Cyber Crime

The European Commission recently proposed a new mandate for the European Network and Information Security Agency (ENISA) along with a Directive to fight the increasing threat of large-scale cyber crime across Europe, in particular in the form of ‘botnets’. The new mandate aims to strengthen and modernise ENISA in order to further boost trust and network security; a key action of the Digital Agenda for Europe.

Due to the increasing challenge of cyber crime and attacks, the European Commission believes that a more cooperative approach is needed, and that a reinforced and modernised ENISA is essential to achieve this. ENISA will act as an interface between cyber-security experts and public authorities who are involved in fighting cyber crime.
