EU Cybersecurity: A newly-formed stakeholders group will work on the cybersecurity certification framework

The Commission and the European Agency for Cybersecurity (ENISA) have announced the creation of the Stakeholders Cybersecurity Certification Group (SCCG), which will advise them on strategic issues regarding cybersecurity certification, while at the same time it will assist the Commission in the preparation of the Union rolling work programme.

Furthermore, its aim, as foreseen by the EU Cybersecurity Act that was adopted a year ago, is to create market driven certification schemes and help reduce fragmentation between various existing schemes in the EU Member States.

The Group consists of representatives from an array of organisations that include academic institutions, consumer organisations, conformity assessment bodies, standard developing organisations, companies, trade associations and many others. The EU is working in building the necessary cybersecurity capabilities to prevent and counter the ever-changing cyber threats and attacks.
