EU: ENISA launches application for ad hoc working group on EU cybersecurity market
The European Union Agency for Cybersecurity ('ENISA') launched, on 8 April 2021, a call for expression of interest concerning an ad hoc working group on the EU cybersecurity market ('the EU Market AHWG'). In particular, ENISA outlined that EU Market AHWG will support them in analysing market trends and segments, with a focus on cybersecurity solutions to meet the market needs of the stakeholders. Specifically, ENISA explained that EU Market AHWG might aid in the identification of cybersecurity market needs of stakeholders and potential recommendations to meet such needs, and in the creation of a gap analysis to identify a need for solutions in relation to EU cybersecurity requirements, among other things. Moreover, ENISA noted that the estimated duration of the EU Market AHWG is three years, and more concrete collaboration beyond the AHWG will be proposed in the coming years.
Applications can be submitted via the dedicated application form by 12:00 EET on 3 May 2021.
In addition, ENISA published, on the same date, the cybersecurity certification market analysis report, which proposes a methodology to carry out market analysis on cybersecurity certification of ICT products, services, and processes, in order to contribute to the EU cybersecurity certification framework and plans on identifying future areas for cybersecurity certification.
