Mandate Extended for the European Network and Information Security Agency

The European Network and Information Security Agency (ENISA) will release a media statement tomorrow announcing the extension of its mandate through 2012.

Mr. Andrea Pirotti, Executive Director of ENISA, stated:
“Network and information security is crucial for the European economy. The need for secure networks, systems and services will certainly not suddenly disappear in 2012. Following the EU parliamentary elections in 2009 and the establishment of a new European Commission, this extension allows for the necessary time to reflect thoroughly upon the activities of ENISA 'post-2012'. Network and information security touches business and the daily lives of citizens in Europe. It consequently needs constant reinforcement to keep up with the evolving threats landscape.”
