European Standardization Organizations Discuss Role of Standards for EU Cybersecurity Strategy

Delegation from the European Standardization Organizations (ESOs) — CEN, CENELEC and ETSI — met with Neelie Kroes, the Vice-President of the European Commission responsible for the Digital Agenda, in Brussels yesterday (2 April 2014) discussing how to maximize the positive contribution that standards can make to enhancing internet security and protecting personal data, in order to support the successful implementation of the EU Cybersecurity Strategy.

According to the ESOs, there is a need to establish a clear and common understanding of the scope of cybersecurity, and to clarify and define the terminology used to describe various aspects and concepts related to cybersecurity. There is also a need to develop standards that will ensure the protection of personal data and inspire public confidence by creating a trustworthy digital environment for European citizens and consumers.
