EC and the European Agency for Cybersecurity (ENISA) announced establishment of the Stakeholders Cybersecurity Certification Group (SCCG), which held its first meeting on June 24, 2020. The aim of the Group is to create market-driven certification schemes and help reduce fragmentation among existing schemes in the EU member states. The European cybersecurity certification framework enables creation of tailored and risk-based EU certification schemes. The certification will provide European companies with the necessary tools to demonstrate that their products and services have state-of-the-art cybersecurity features.
The Group was established under the Cybersecurity Act of 2019 to advise EC and ENISA on strategic issues regarding cybersecurity certification and to assist EC in the preparation of the EU rolling work program. The Group consists of representatives from an array of organizations that include academic institutions, consumer organizations, conformity assessment bodies, standard developing organizations, companies, trade associations and many others. EU is working in building the necessary cybersecurity capabilities to prevent and counter the ever-changing cyber threats and attacks. In line with the Cybersecurity Act, EC and ENISA will co-chair the meetings of the Stakeholder Cybersecurity Certification Group. ENISA will also provide the secretariat of the Group. In principle, the Group should meet three times per year.
