EU - Evaluation of the European Network and Information Security Agency (ENISA)

A public consultation has started on the future of ENISA, the European Network and Information Security Agency. This public consultation was announced on 1 June in a Commission Communication on the evaluation of ENISA. ENISA was established in order to enhance the capability of the Community, the Member States and consequently the business community to prevent, to address and to respond to major network and information security risks, from 14 March 2004 for an initial period of five years. The ENISA Regulation mandates an evaluation of the Agency by 17 March 2007, notably with the aim to determine whether the duration of the Agency should be extended beyond the period of five years.
