Establishment of a local office presence of ENISA in Brussels, Belgium

Today, the European Commission gave it prior consent to the establishment of a local office presence of ENISA (European Union Agency for Cybersecurity) in Brussels, Belgium.

The European Union Agency for Cybersecurity (ENISA) is mandated to promote synergies and assist the Member States and Union institutions, bodies, offices and agencies in their efforts to build and enhance capabilities and preparedness to prevent, detect and respond to cyber threats and incidents, and assisting in developing and implementing the relevant policies.

The ENISA Local Office in Brussels, Belgium is to be established with a view to implement structured cooperation with CERT EU and to maintain regular and systematic cooperation with Union institutions, bodies and agencies including but not limited to CERT-EU, European External Action Service, Europol and the European Defence Agency and/or other competent bodies involved in cybersecurity, in order to benefit from synergies and avoid the duplication of activities.

The Management Board of the European Union Agency for Cybersecurity delegates to the Executive Director of the Agency related powers to ensure the smooth establishment of the local office in Brussels, Belgium. He will also assign staff to the ENISA Local Office in Brussels in accordance with the needs of the Agency and the scope of the activities required.
