ENISA, the European Union Agency for Network and Information Security, is a centre of expertise for cyber security in Europe. ENISA helps the EU and EU countries to be better equipped and prepared to prevent, detect and respond to information security problems.

ENISA provides practical advice and solutions for the public and private sector in EU countries and for the EU institutions. This includes:

  • organising cross-Europe cyber crisis exercises
  • developing national cyber security strategies
  • promoting cooperation between computer emergency response teams and capacity building.

ENISA also publishes reports and studies on cyber security issues. It also helps to draft EU policy and law on network and information security. This also contributes to economic growth in Europe’s internal market.
