The European Commission today presented a proposal for a new mandate to strengthen and modernise the European Network and Information Security Agency (ENISA). This initiative is foreseen by the Digital Agenda for Europe (see IP/10/581, MEMO/10/199 and MEMO/10/200) and to boost trust and network security. Strengthening and modernising ENISA will help the EU, Member States and private stakeholders develop their capabilities and preparedness to prevent, detect and respond to cyber-security challenges. The proposal will be forwarded to the European Parliament and the EU's Council of Ministers for adoption. The ENISA proposal is complemented by a proposal for a Directive to deal with new cyber crimes, such as large-scale cyber attacks ("botnets") See also IP/10/1239 and MEMO/10/463.
