The Commission proposes a Regulation to establish common cybersecurity measures across the European Union institutions, bodies, offices and agencies. The key elements of the proposal for Cybersecurity Regulation:
- Strengthen the mandate of CERT-EU and provide the resources it needs to fulfil it;
- Require from all EU institutions, bodies, offices and agencies to:
- Have a framework for governance, risk management and control in the area of cybersecurity;
- Implement a baseline of cybersecurity measures addressing the identified risks;
- Conduct regular maturity assessments;
- Put in place a plan for improving their cybersecurity, approved by the entity's leadership;
- Share incident-related information with CERT-EU without undue delay.
- Set up a new inter-institutional Cybersecurity Board to drive and monitor the implementation of the regulation and to steer CERT-EU;
- Rename CERT-EU from ‘Computer Emergency Response Team' to ‘Cybersecurity Centre', in line with developments in the Member States and globally, but keep the short name ‘CERT-EU' for name recognition.
