Council adopts its position on cybersecurity in the EU institutions


Last 18 November, the Council of the EU adopted its position for the upcoming negotiations on measures for a high common level of cybersecurity in the EU institutions, agencies and bodies.

This responds to an increase in cyber and hybrid attacks targeting EU entities and follows up on different conclusions and proposals that stressed the need to enhance their level of cybersecurity.

The draft regulation aims to boost the resilience and incident response capacities of all the EU institutions and to create a common framework in order to address the disparities in their approach. In particular, it strengthens the mandate and funding of CERT-EU, creates an interinstitutional Cybersecurity Board to guide the implementation of the new regulation, and supports collaboration in response to cyber incidents.
