Public hearing on the "Cybersecurity act"

The European Union works on a number of fronts to promote cyber resilience across the EU. On 13 September 2017 the European Commission submitted to the Council a proposal for a Regulation of the European Parliament and of the Council on ENISA, the "EU cybersecurity Agency", and the repealing Regulation (EU 526/2013), and on Information and Communication technology cybersecurity certification ("Cybersecurity Act").

The Council decided to consult the EESC on this proposal. As part of its consultative work, the EESC is holding a public hearing entitled "Cybersecurity act", which will take place on Tuesday, 9 January 2018, 9:30-13:00, at the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC), Rue Belliard 99 – 1040 Brussels (room JDE62).

The event will offer the opportunity to take stock of the emergence of a model of European resilience in the context of attacks hitting citizens, social systems and economic sectors across Member States. 

These activities follow the adoption of the EESC opinion "Strengthening Europe's Cyber Resilience System" (TEN / 608) adopted in December 2016 :
