Summary:

Legislative initiative - tabled by the European Commission on 22 March 2022 - laying down measures for a common level of cybersecurity at the institutions, bodies, offices and agencies of the European Union (EU).

Further information:

This proposal establishes a framework for ensuring common cybersecurity rules and measures among the EU institutions, bodies and agencies. It aims at further improving all entities’ resilience and incident response capacities. It modernises the existing CERT-EU legal framework and takes account of the changed and increased digitisation of the institutions, bodies and agencies over the years as well as the evolving cybersecurity threat landscape. It renames CERT-EU from Computer Emergency Response Team  to Cybersecurity Centre for the Union institutions, bodies and agencies, in line with similar developments in the Member States and globally, but it retains the acronym.

The draft law was adopted by the European Commission on 22 March 2022, and it built on the EU Security Union Strategy and the EU's Cybersecurity Strategy for the Digital Decade. The Council of the European Union adopted its general approach on 18 November.
