Security enabling the Commission to work in a safe and secure environment by ensuring security of persons, assets and information

Commission decisions

The objective of security in the Commission is to enable the Commission to operate in a safe and secure environment. Thus, the Commission needs to provide security of persons, assets and information in the Commission on the basis of Commission Decision (EU,Euratom) 2015/443 on Security in the Commission and Commission Decision (EU,Euratom) 2015/444 on the security rules for protecting EU classified information. This particularly includes the physical integrity of persons and assets, the integrity, confidentiality and availability of information and communication and information systems, as well as the unobstructed functioning of Commission operations.

In this context the Commission may need to process personal data. Any of such processing activities comply with Regulation (EU) 2018/1725 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 23 October 2018 on the protection of natural persons with regard to the processing of personal data by the Union institutions, bodies, offices and agencies and on the free movement of such data, and repealing Regulation (EC) No 45/2001 and Decision No 1247/2002/EC (Text with EEA relevance).
