ENISA: Getting Ready for Cyber Europe 2012

Wednesday, June 27, 2012



On June 26th, cyber security experts from across Europe are meeting in Paris for an intense training day in preparation for Cyber Europe 2012.

Cyber Europe 2012 is the 2nd pan-European exercise on Critical Information Infrastructure Protection (CIIP).

It builds on and ties together the extensive activities in the EU, at both national and European level, to improve the resilience of critical information infrastructures. The exercise will take place in the autumn.

Exercises are an important mechanism to assess preparedness for cyber threats, natural disasters, and technology failures. They enable authorities to target specific weaknesses and increase cooperation among stakeholders. Exercises also identify interdependencies, stimulate continuity planning, and train and educate people.

The Cyber Europe 2012 exercise scenario will be based on large-scale cyber incidents where critical information infrastructure is affected across Europe.

Policy Context

Supporting EU-wide cyber-security preparedness exercises is one of the actions foreseen by the Digital Agenda for Europe to enhance online trust and security - see IP/10/581, MEMO/10/199 and MEMO/10/200.

It is also an important part of the efforts to enhance preparedness, security and resilience as laid out in the CIIP communication action plan - see COM(2009) 149 and COM(2011) 163.

Organisers of Cyber Europe 2012

Cyber Europe 2012 is organised by the EU Member States and EFTA countries, and jointly supported by the European Network and Information Security Agency (ENISA) and the EU’s Joint Research Centre (JRC).
