To assist the EU Member States in the important task of developing and maintaining a successful national cyber security strategy, ENISA (European Network and Information Security Agency) is developing a ´Good Practice Guide´.
The guide will present good practices and recommendations on how to develop, implement and maintain a cyber security strategy.
This paper presents some of the preliminary findings from this project.
It includes a short analysis of the current status of cyber security strategies within the European Union (EU) and elsewhere. It also identifies common themes and differences, and concludes with a series of observations and recommendations.
