Dear CROS portal user,
In order to log in to CROS (from a computer outside of the European Commission’s IT environment), you need to have an EU Login account allowing two-factor authentication. That means that you must either register your mobile phone number in your EU Login account or install the EU Login application on your smartphone. See the instructions for doing so at here.
All EU login accounts have to be validated by the CROS portal team. (Until they have been validated, they will be blocked.) From 25 May onwards, please send us a request via the contact form in case your account is still blocked (in order to have your account validated).


ESS IT Security

IT Security

The data and information systems that support NSIs and Eurostat's mission are highly important assets that play an essential role in maintaining their operational effectiveness, legal compliance and reputation.

Secured and reliable transmission/access of assets like information/data/software and services between Member States and Eurostat, or between Member States themselves, is a prior condition to the development of a future common infrastructure supporting the implementation of the Vision.

It is therefore important to build mutual trust between ESS (European Statistical System) partners and agree on common rules and standards for the management, exchange and storing of confidential information within the ESS.

For that purpose, the ITDG (Meeting of Directors of IT in the ESS) agreed in November 2012 on the creation of a new working group dealing with IT security and secure exchange of data within the ESS.

In order to prepare the work and mandate of this new WG, a meeting of experts of IT security in the NSIs and experts of security in associated research and ESSnet projects is convened in Luxembourg on 13-14/12/2012.
