Cyber becoming a strategic priority

He added that a capability plan is being finalised by EDA next year to determine strategic priorities.  “I would be surprised if cyber was not a priority if not at the top of the list,” he said.

 

ENISA’s report claimed that this year has seen impressive successes by law-enforcement, and that an increasing number of reports and data regarding cyber-threats has also improved the quality of available information.

 

“Cooperation among relevant organisations to commonly assess and defend cyber-threats has been envisaged and is going to gain speed in the near future,” the report said.

 

The report recommended the active involvement of end-users in defence of cyber-threats and increasing the speed of threat assessment to reduce exposures.
