The latest resilience news from around the world

A new study by ENISA provides methodologies for the identification of critical information infrastructure services in communication networks and suggests possible improvements that would allow EU Member States and operators of critical information infrastructure services to protect themselves from future threats and challenges.

Using the study decision makers in Member States will be able to:

  • Define critical sectors and services supported by electronic communication networks;
  • Identify critical information infrastructure assets and services supporting critical services, especially regarding internal and external interdependencies;
  • Foster baseline security guidelines to ensure the resilience of critical networks assets and services;
  • Closely cooperate with critical infrastructure assets owners and operators that should be involved in any related initiative in the security and resilience of these assets.

In 2015 ENISA will continue fostering security and resilience of European networks. The focus will be on assessing critical communication networks, links and components. Furthermore the Agency will continue to promote the engagement of the network operations community, via the INFRASEC - Internet infrastructure security and resilience reference group, workshops and other awareness activities.
