In the field of security and privacy, European standardization is a key element for opening-up the market for products and services, supporting the introduction of new technologies, ensuring interoperability and a common understanding among European countries. The security of information and communication systems (or ‘cybersecurity’) is an area of increasing concern, both for public authorities and for private companies. European standards are needed to meet specific requirements regarding the privacy of citizens and data protection, in line with relevant EU legislation.
More information on the latest CEN-CENELEC activities on Security and existing European Standards and other deliverables (Technical Reports and Specifications) can be obtained by visiting the dedicated website.
