Ansip plans cybersecurity centres

Europe would benefit from a series of offices certifying the cybersecurity of tech products, Andrus Ansip, the European Commission vice-president for digital policy, has said.

European certification for technology products would aim to give them a competitive advantage in world markets. One or more certification centres could be launched as part of the overhaul of the EU’s cybersecurity regulations that will be proposed in September, the news website Euractiv reported Ansip as saying.

Ansip tweeted a photo of himself visiting Nato’s cybersecurity centre in Tallinn, Estonia on 13 July, and said that “more centres of excellence are needed”. Unlike the Nato centre, the EU cybersecurity centres would focus on products rather than defence and legal issues, Ansip told Euractiv.
