ENISA publishes new NCSS map at 7th NCSS workshop

Thu, 09/26/2019 - 16:35

During the workshop, ENISA also presented the preliminary results of a study about innovation in cybersecurity as a strategic priority of NCSS, which will be published later this year.

All Member States of the European Union produce a National Cybersecurity Strategy as a feature of their cybersecurity policy. These National Cybersecurity Strategies provide plans of actions and priorities to improve the security and resilience of national infrastructures and services.

Steve Purser, Head of Core Operations, ENISA said: “The cyber threat landscape is changing constantly and at a rapid pace. Member States cybersecurity strategies therefore need priorities and actions that reflect these challenges and the National Cybersecurity Strategies mapping provides guidance and best practices to follow.”

ENISA’s ROLE on the National Cybersecurity Strategies

ENISA analyses these strategies and their implementation and provides guidance and tools to assist Member States in in their efforts to enhance cybersecurity at a national level. A key support for Member States created by ENISA is the NCSS interactive map. This interactive map lists all the NCSS within the European Union together with best practices to follow.

Today, ENISA launched the new version of the NCSS map implementing features that greatly improve its usability. Not only has the map been expanded and the Agency has also transformed it into an information hub including Member States’ national efforts to enhance their cybersecurity.

The New Interactive Map – Information Hub

The new mapping includes:

    • The national document both in English and the native language
    •  The strategy's objectives and detailed examples of implementation
    •  Version history if there are more than one NCSS
    •  National cybersecurity organisations,
    •  National Information Sharing and Analysis Centres (ISACs) and Public Private Partnerships (PPPs)
    • R&D and Innovation programmes
Check out the new interactive map here.

All the information about the EU Member States can be added in a repository and can be extracted from the website. Finally, the map will now expand on the whole screen.

7th National Cybersecurity Strategies Workshop

The 7th National Cybersecurity workshop, organised by ENISA, was hosted by NASK Poland on 26th September in Warsaw.

The first session ‘Innovation in Cybersecurity’ focused on Member States' approaches and initiatives to foster innovation in cybersecurity at a national level. It included ENISA’s Vice Chair of the Management Board, Krzysztof Silicki, the Deputy Director for Cybersecurity and Innovation at NASK, who gave a welcoming speech. Karol Okoński, Secretary of State of the Polish Ministry of Digital Affairs, Government Plenipotentiary for Cybersecurity presented on NCSS and cybersecurity innovation in Poland

ENISA presented the draft conclusions of a study that focuses on innovation as a strategic objective of National Cyber Security Strategies, which will be published later this year. The presentation highlighted the importance of supporting and developing innovation strategic objectives within NCSS. Objectives that will focus on sector specific priorities, provision of adequate level of funding and the establishment of collaboration mechanisms that will involve key stakeholders.

The European Commission gave a presentation on the cybersecurity competence centres approaches and a second one on the Connecting Europe Facility call on ISACs.

 During the second session, EU Information Sharing and Analysis Centres (ISACs) from the Energy, Financial and Rail sectors shared their experience with the tools they use, good practices and the challenges they face when dealing with information sharing and collaboration.

Improving Communication and Information Sharing Across Incident Response Communities

Wed, 09/04/2019 - 10:40

These are required to facilitate information exchange among teams and improve reaction time to security incidents.

The methodology presented could also be valid for other operational teams grouped in an information sharing and analysis centre (ISAC). The goal is to provide a methodology and to illustrate what criteria they could consider when selecting communication solutions that can fit their size and needs.

As of June 2019 there are more than 414 incident response teams in Europe. These teams work together to respond to cyber-attacks and need to use secure and reliable communication channels to share threat and incident information while protecting European citizens and businesses. These incident response teams are often organized in communities such as CSIRTs Network, TF-CSIRT, FIRST and other regional, sub regional or sectorial communities and they continuously communicate and exchange information. Typical information exchanged among teams include threat intelligence, indicators of compromise (IoCs), malware samples and details about relevant incidents.

Previous ENISA work on the topic

Since 2005, ENISA has been supporting Member States and CSIRT communities in EU to build and advance their incident response capabilities with handbooks, online & onsite trainings and dedicated projects. ENISA’s portfolio of work is related to setting up, running or developing capabilities of Computer Security Incident Response Teams (CSIRTs).  The goal is to define minimum common baseline practices across the EU to improve operational cooperation, preparedness and information exchange for the next generation of cyber-attacks.  More info can be found at https://www.enisa.europa.eu/csirt-maturity

Annual report Trust Services Security Incidents 2018

Mon, 07/15/2019 - 11:25

The document gives an aggregated overview of security breaches with significant impact reported in 2018 by EU national supervisory bodies. It shows root causes, statistics and trends, and marks the third round of security incident reporting for the EU’s trust services sector.

According to the eIDAS regulation, trust service providers must notify these security breaches to their national supervisory body. The annual summary reporting for 2018 totalled 18 incident reports. A total of 28 EU countries and one 1 EFTA country take part in annual summary reporting.

Key statistics relating to the 2018 incidents

Malicious actions and system failures are the dominant root causes of reported incidents: System failures amount for 39% of the total incidents (consistent with 36% in 2017). Malicious actions have gone up to 39% (compared to 7% in 2017).

A few, but critical security breaches with cross border impact: Some 25% of the reported incidents had a cross-border impact. Although the ratio is small, the seriousness of the incidents was high: 75% of them were classified as level 4 – severe and 5 – disastrous.

Qualified e-signatures certificates creation – the most affected service: Roughly 50% of the incidents reported affected the qualified creation of qualified certificates for e-signatures.

The EU Agency for Cybersecurity ENISA

ENISA will provide advice and input on the upcoming eIDAS review by the Commission, due mid-2020. The Agency will also continue to support the national supervisory bodies with implementing the breach reporting under Article 19 eIDAS and to work towards making this process efficient and effective, yielding useful data, for the supervising bodies, for the authorities of other sectors, as well as for the trust service providers and the organisations relying on these trust services. 

Outlook

The cooperation network of authorities for national electronic identity systems and the group of national supervisory bodies for the electronic trust services market will benefit from the close collaboration on security supervision and information sharing about incidents, threats, good practices, etc.

Basic situational awareness about vulnerabilities and large-scale threats will help the supervisory bodies to do a more effective supervision. ENISA will continue to facilitate information sharing between the relevant authorities and supervisory bodies.

A close connection with regular exchange and updates about past incidents, threats, good practices, etc. between eIDAS, the European Electronic Communication Code (EECC) and the Digital infrastructures part of the NIS Directive is important, because these are closely related areas. ENISA will facilitate this and act as a bridge.

For the full report: Trust Services Security Incidents 2018 - Annual report


Background information

Electronic trust services are a range of services around digital signatures, digital certificates, electronic seals, timestamps, etc. which are used in electronic transactions, to make them secure. eIDAS, an EU regulation, is the EU wide legal framework ensuring interoperability and security of these electronic trust services across the EU. One of the goals of eIDAS is to ensure that electronic transactions can have the same legal standing as traditional paper based transactions. eIDAS is important for the European digital market because it allows businesses and citizens to work and use services across the EU. The eIDAS regulation was adopted in July 2014 and came into force in 2016.

ENISA Panel on Digital Sovereignty at CODE Annual Conference

Fri, 07/12/2019 - 08:54

© Copyright: @FI_CODE

Titled ‘How to Achieve Digital Sovereignty of Europe’, the panel saw the participation of high-level members: Klaus Vitt, State Secretary, Federal Ministry of Interior, Building and Community, Benedikt Zimmer, State Secretary, Federal Ministry of Defence, Roberto Viola, Director General, DG CONNECT, European Commission, Jorge Domecq, Executive Director, European Defence Agency, and Evert Dudok, Executive Vice President Communications, Intelligence and Security, Airbus Defence and Space.

Discussions revolved around current hot topics on the EU agenda, namely:

  • What exactly is digital sovereignty? Is there a clear priority or challenge that relates to digital sovereignty in Europe?
  • Are there possible mechanisms or clear responses to strengthen the EU’s position in the global digital society? Should this be driven by regulation, academic research, and/or subvention of public funding?
  • From a global perspective: how should Europe respond to the current market development and strength of global tech giants from outside the EU? Should Europe create its own champions? Should Europe invest in specific niches and further intensify its innovation by using the strength of its SMEs?
  • Should the EU change or develop specific regulation to support digital sovereignty? What kind of cooperation model has the most potential for success? What would be the role of government, industry and academia on local, national and European level?

On this occasion, Mr. Helmbrecht also launched ENISA’s consultation paper ‘EU ICT Industrial Policy: Breaking the Cycle of Failure’, a paper that aims to explore, amongst other topics, the area of digital sovereignty. He noted that the outcomes of this consultation will serve as input for a further publication and input into the discussions with the new European Commission and European Parliament.

The paper looks into the strengths and shortcomings of the ICT industrial policy in the EU from a cybersecurity perspective, with a view to how Europe can do better, and how the development of EU cybersecurity industry in the years to come can be rendered a success.

 “The question is if and why are examples of European leadership in ICT beginning to fade. Is there insufficient coordination in relation to cybersecurity in the EU? Could resources be deployed more efficiently? These are some of the questions that are being presented for discussion. We look forward to receiving your input into this consultation”, said Mr. Helmbrecht.

Secondly, ENISA also gave a workshop at the conference on ‘Challenges and Application of Threat Intelligence’ introducing our CTI Capability Framework and Maturity Model in the annual threat landscape report.

Finally, ENISA’s Head of Core Operations, Steve Purser moderated the workshop ‘Digital Souvereignty - A Must for Europe’ which provided a discussion on how a policy shift can be achieved and how we can move towards a more competitive and more digitally sovereign European ICT sector.

ENISA puts out EU ICT Industrial Policy paper for consultation

Wed, 07/10/2019 - 07:45

Copyright: Shutterstock

The paper serves as the basis for a consultation, where ENISA seeks the views of citizens, private and public stakeholders on how the European market may be understood and improved.

Interested parties are invited to submit their comments by 31 August 2019 by filling in the electronic survey.

The outcomes of this consultation will serve as input for a further publication and input into the discussions with the new European Commission and European Parliament.

The paper looks into the strengths and shortcomings of the ICT industrial policy in the EU from a cybersecurity perspective, with a view to how Europe can do better, and how the development of EU cybersecurity industry in the years to come can be rendered a success.

The paper identifies the current European ICT state-of-play, where in an average European office, ICT software and hardware are generally built and developed in Asia and the USA. Where Europe once led the world in the deployment of initially analogue and then mobile telecommunications technology such as GSM, Europe is now debating the appropriateness of the supply of 5G technology from non-European suppliers. Traditional EU mobile handset manufacturers are struggling to compete with major Asian and US suppliers.

Moreover, successful European businesses have been or are often acquired by larger companies from outside the EU. It is surprising to see how the European ICT industry is falling behind in the global competition race, while according to the European Commission, the EU Member States are among the most digitally advanced in the world.

Executive Director of ENISA Prof. Dr. Udo Helmbrecht: “The question is if and why are examples of European leadership in ICT beginning to fade. Is there insufficient coordination in relation to cybersecurity in the EU? Could resources be deployed more efficiently? These are some of the questions that are being presented for discussion. We look forward to receiving your input into this consultation.”
