The EU is to enhance its cyber resilience by setting up an EU-wide certification framework for information and communication technology (ICT) products, services and processes. The industry could use the new mechanism to certify products such as connected cars and smart medical devices. The Council today agreed its general approach on the proposal, known as the Cybersecurity Act. The proposal will also upgrade the current European Union Agency for Network and Information Security (ENISA) into a permanent EU agency for cybersecurity.

"We all want our devices to be secure. This new certification framework will increase trust and confidence in innovative digital solutions."

Ivaylo Moskovski, Bulgarian Minister for Transport, Information Technology and Communications
