EU Commission plans new cyber security centre to certify security of technology products

European Commission vice-president Andrus Ansip is planning to set up a new cybersecurity centre to improve the competitiveness of European technological products on a global scale.

The new centre would certify the cybersecurity level of technology products, to strengthen EU member states' cyber security standards and capabilities, which according to Ansip are not yet ready to counter major cyber attacks. 

"European products and cybersecurity products are not able, only some of them are able, to compete in the world market. We have to pay much more attention to this," Ansip said.

In September, the EU will present updates on the project together with a set of measures on cyber security certification together with an updated EU cybersecurity strategy and a new legal basis for the European Network and Information Security Agency (ENISA).
